Walker, the No. 13 RB in the nation per the 247Sports composite rankings, chose the Hoosiers over Michigan State and Virginia. He becomes Indiana’s first running back and first 4-star commit in the 2018 class. That class now has 24 commitments.
The 5-foot-10 running back became particularly close to Indiana running backs coach Mike Hart during the recruiting process. Hart, who starred at Michigan from 2004-07, first started pursuing Walker while working as Syracuse’s running backs coach. He started at Indiana in March.
“He just stuck with me, and he’s saying that I’m his guy,” Walker told Land of 10 after his visit in July. “We’ve built a very strong relationship.”
Walker started his senior season off strong on Friday, scoring on the first play from scrimmage Friday en route to 166 yards and a pair of touchdowns, per The Progress-Index.
