Iowa loses commitment from four-star defensive back
There was suspicion that after Eno Benjamin announced he was decommitting from Iowa, fellow Texan Chevin Calloway would follow suit.
After weeks of speculation, that was confirmed.
According to rivals.com’s Blair Sanderson, Calloway opened up his recruitment.
The four-star defensive back was the second-highest rated recruit left in Kirk Ferentz’s 2017 class. Calloway is the No. 12 cornerback and the No. 113 player overall.
The Under Armour All-American took official visits to Nebraska and Arkansas during the season. He also has plans to visit Ole Miss and Colorado. He has scholarship offers from virtually every school in the country.
It was a long-expected hit for Iowa’s suddenly-reeling recruiting class. The Hawkeyes, which were ranked in the top 20 at one point, are now down to No. 34 in the 247sports class rankings.
On the bright side, the Hawkeyes still have a verbal pledge from five-star defensive end A.J. Epenesa, who is the top-rated defensive end in the country.
It remains to be seen if there will be any domino effect on the rest of Iowa’s class. The Hawkeyes have four other Texas recruits committed for 2017.
