Chuck Martin and the Miami staff picked up a big commitment on Sunday from Jalen Walker, out of Carmel, Indiana. Walker announced via twitter that he will be attending Miami.

“The people at Miami made it special. It was the perfect fit for me.” Walker told the Hustle Belt.

Walker holds the Carmel High School record for career touchdown receptions and receptions. Walker was a 3-star All Purpose Back according to 247Sports. Walker had reported offers from Central Michigan, Ball State, Cincinnati, and Ohio.

While talking to Walker’s coach he said “he works so hard, and wants to win just as much or more than the coaches. He knows when the team needs a play, and he goes out there and makes it.”

Walker could be an instant contributor for the RedHawks as his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield will be a welcome addition to the offense.
