"Nothing has changed," Calloway said. "It's still Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas (in no particular order). "I had a great trip to Texas. I'm headed out to Arkansas this weekend and I'll make a decision shortly after that."

The Longhorns have tried to make a late move for the nation's No. 137 rated overall player. The 5-foot-11 corner was in Austin over the weekend.


"It went pretty well. The trip was a good experience. I got to talk to coaches (Tom) Herman and (Jason) Washington. They answered all of the important questions I had. That was the biggest thing. I wanted to know how their schemes worked. How would I fit into their schedmes. I found out about their network for job placements after college. It's the number one network in the country. That's pretty cool."

Arkansas has been in the game with Calloway for a while now. He has tripped there several times in the past. Chevin will bring his mother with him on the visit to Fayetteville this weekend.

"I want to find out the same things about Arkansas as I did Texas. I want to get to visit a little more of their campus and see if I fit in with the people up there. I just want to see what it is all about."

Chevin took in his official visit to Ole Miss before the dead period started in December.

"I just like the way they stay in contact with me. They stay in constant contact with me and come see me a lot. They are coming back to see me this week. It just lets me know how much they want me. Coach Freeze is coming with the rest of the coaches. I like the way coach Freeze handles his program. He is always encouraging his players and is a player's coach. I know they have a lot going on (with the NCAA investigation), but I think coach Freeze will have them back better and stronger. They really know how to develop their players. That's what I like about Ole Miss."

How big of a factor is it for Ole Miss with the NCAA investigation still going on?

"I do want to play in bowl games, but if I didn't get a chance to play in one it wouldn't be the end of the world either. That's what I think about sometimes. Do I want to get caught up in all of that stuff? But, I just like Ole Miss though. It would make it a lot easier for me if they didn't have that going on, but I'm taking a wait-and-see approach. Ole Miss doesn't think it will be that bad. Other coaches tell me it will. I don't think it's fair on the players who are going through this to not know what the penalities are going to be. Why do they want to make us guess at what is going to happen? I know what Ole Miss is saying. I know what the other coaches are telling me, but I want to hear it from the NCAA. Why do they leave us hanging like this? It's not fair."
