A former top recruit has announced his transfer out of Michigan's football program.
Kareem Walker, the No. 4 running back in the 2016 class, is transferring out of the Wolverines' program and heading to a JUCO.
The former four-star recruit is heading to Fort Scott Community College in Kansas.
The Detroit Free-Press first reported the news:
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 never seemed to get going at Michigan and there had been rumors about his potential departure from the program for a while.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound running back totaled 68 yards and 1 touchdown on 20 carries during his career.
