  COMMITMENT PROFILE A year ago at this time, Wayne (N.J.) DePaul Catholic running back Kareem Walker appeared destined to become a Buckeye. While Ohio State was on its way to a 42-20 victory over Oregon in the national championship game on Jan. 12, 2015, he announced his intentions to head to Columbus via Twitter. Less than a year later, he was a Wolverine. "It was real hard," Walker said of the decision to flip from OSU to U-M. "Michigan has been in the mix longer than anyone, even when I was com- mitted to Ohio State. They've really been in the mix longer than others, and I just feel really comfortable with the coaches and the players there."
