"No, (Darren) hasn't made a decision," Mini Muhammad told The Morning News. "I didn't even tell that man (Darren's) made a decision."
An report written by ESPN.com national columnist Pat Forde on Friday said that Muhammad told him that McFadden has indicated to her that he'll leave Arkansas after his junior season and enter the NFL Draft.
"He told me (Friday), 'Mom, I'll be through in December,'" Muhammad is quoted as saying in Forde's story. "I said, 'What you mean?' He said, 'I'll be through.' That's what he told me."
Muhammad said Friday night that the ESPN.com article is not accurate. She said that she merely meant that McFadden would be done with playing football for this season in December.
"You know I don't know a thing about football," Muhammad said Friday night. "(Forde) asked something about Darren and football. I said, 'Well, (Darren) said he'd be through in December.' He said, 'Well, do you think he's going to go to the NFL?' I said, 'Well, I don't really know right now, but I'm sure he will.
"But he'll be through in December, like he'll be through playing football (this season).'"
Graylon McFadden, Darren's father, said late Friday night that his son hasn't told him that he's made a decision about whether to leave Arkansas early for the NFL.
"Well, it's a possibility," his father told The Morning News. "I'm not going to say yeah or nay, just it may happen."
McFadden, last year's Heisman Trophy finalist, is eligible to enter the NFL Draft after this season. But he has said that he won't make a decision about his future until after this upcoming season.
McFadden has the potential to be a top 5 pick, possibly the first overall selection, if he entered the draft after this season.
Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said Friday night that he's spoken with McFadden once in January about the NFL, but the running back hasn't told him that he's made a decision about it.
"We talked about it one time and that was January sometime," Nutt told The Morning News. "He told me once (he'll) wait 'til the end of the year and see what happens."
