It looks like Kareem Walker's Michigan career is over as the one-time highly-rated Ohio State commit is headed to the junior college ranks, joining Fort Scott Community College.

From Nick Baumgardner of the Detroit Free Press:

Fort Scott Community College head coach Kale Pick told reporters at the recent Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference football media day event Walker has signed to play with Fort Scott for the 2018 season. 

Pick said Walker signed with his program Friday. 

Pick says Fort Scott has also signed former Michigan (and Rutgers) receiver Ahmir Mitchell. Both players signed with the Wolverines during the 2016 class. Both enrolled early and were part of Jim Harbaugh's first "Signing of the Stars" event in Ann Arbor.

Walker originally committed to Ohio State during halftime of Ohio State's 2014 College Football Playoff Championship win and was the nation's top running back at the time. After decommitting from Ohio State the following November, and signed with Michigan less than a month later.

After sitting out his entire freshman due to academic issues, Walker played sparingly his second season, netting 20 rush attempts for 68 yards and a touchdown.
