On Thursday, Arkansas suffered a bit of bad news on the recruiting trail.

According to a report from 247Sports, 4-star running back Chase Hayden has dropped his pledge to the Razorbacks’ program. He will visit Michigan this weekend — with a potential Wolverine commitment looming.

Arkansas does have another running back committed for this class (Maleek Williams). Regardless, losing Hayden is a blow. The Tennessee native is an explosive athlete with very good top-end speed.


Hayden has denied the report published by 247Sports.
