Five-star running back Kareem Walker sets announcement date

Running back Kareem Walker is one of the most highly sought after players in the nation right now. He has been offered by nearly every major team in the FBS and it looks like he will soon make his decision for the 2016 season.

According to a report by, Walker has set his announcement date for this Thursday. He will make the official announcement at De Paul Catholic High School in New Jersey at 12:30 p.m. EST.

He is currently down to his final five schools as Arizona State, Florida State, Michigan, Auburn, and Alabama have all caught Walker’s attention.

This announcement will come just a month after Walker announced his de-commitment from Ohio State

Scout currently has Walker listed as the second-ranked running back in the nation and the top ranked player in the state of New Jersey. I am sure any of those five teams would love to have a talent like him to their roster for next year.
