2015 defensive end commitment Hjalte Froholdt of Denmark said Chris Ash leaving Arkansas has no impact on his pledge to the Hogs.
"I didn't get to know Coach Ash that much. I knew he was a great coach, and I was excited to get to know him better. But as Coach Bielema just showed, by finding a great coach like Segrest. He's going to find a great new DC for the Razorback program."
He said cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson informed him of Ash leaving.
