Kareem Walker's career at Michigan appears to be over. 

The one-time Ohio State commit and Wolverine running back is set to transfer along with Michigan teammate Kekoa Crawford, according to a report from Jordan Strack of WTOL-11 in Toledo. 

Walker originally committed to Ohio State during halftime of the 2015 College Football Playoff title game against Oregon, but eventually decommitted in November of 2015. He committed to Jim Harbaugh's Wolverines on Dec. 17, 2015 and enrolled early. 

After redshirting the 2016 season, Walker tallied just 20 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown last season, appearing in just five games.

Crawford's departure is slightly more surprising than Walker's. A fellow member of Michigan's 2016 recruiting class, Crawford recorded four catches as a true freshman before hauling in 17 passes for 243 yards and a score in 2017. His best game came in the bowl contest against South Carolina, as he caught five passes for 61 yards in a 26-19 loss.
