OSU top RB recruit gives update on commitment status
Kareem Walker is not wavering on his decision.
The nation’s No. 1 running back recruit, who gave his verbal commitment to Ohio State in January, has been the subject of national headlines in recent weeks after taking an official visit to rival Michigan.
In the week that followed, four-star tailback Antonio Williams decommitted from Wisconsin to take a visit to Ohio State. He then announced his commitment to Ohio State amidst controversy that the Buckeyes were making plans in case Walker changed his decision.
On Wednesday, he sent a message to ESPN recruiting analyst Tom VanHaaren on where he stands with his recruitment.

So Walker basically squashed the notion that Williams’ commitment to Ohio State was the result of anything he did and that it will affect anything he will do. And that would also squash any notion that the Buckeyes were going to pull their offer if Walker took another official visit outside of Columbus.
The Buckeyes have the No. 1 recruiting class for 2016 and still appear to have locked down two of the nation’s tailbacks. Maybe now Michigan and Ohio State coaches will stop their subtle jabs about Walker’s commitment.
But probably not.
