Kareem Walker Still Playing Football, Commits to South Alabama

Kareem Walker is on the move again.

At one point in time, Kareem Walker was the top-rated running back in the country and an Ohio State commit in the 2016 recruiting class.

Now, entering his sixth season of college football, Walker is heading to his fourth school, committing to South Alabama.

Walker, the top-ranked running back in the 2016 class at the time, committed to the Buckeyes at halftime of Ohio State's national title game win over Oregon. The commitment didn't stick and Walker ultimately signed with Michigan out of high school.

At Michigan, Walker missed his entire freshman season with academic issues, then appeared in just five games as a sophomore, totaling 20 carries for 68 yards and one touchdown. Following the 2017 season, Walker left Michigan for the Juco ranks.

After spending a season at Fort Scott Community College in Kansas, where he totaled 64 carries for 207 yards and one touchdown, Walker transferred to Mississippi State ahead of the 2019 season, but did not see the field and elected to transfer from the program midway through last season.

It's worth noting that back in April, Walker also committed to Southeastern Louisiana, but it appears he will be playing Division I football, instead, spending his final season of eligibility at South Alabama.
