Four-star running back Ronnie Walker had some pretty nice offers from the likes of Navy, North Carolina, N.C. State, Michigan State and his hometown Virginia. However, he decided to commit to Big Ten cellar dweller Indiana. He told Scout that it ultimately came down to academics for him.
“It really came down to academics,” Walker said. “Over the last four years, they’ve had a 100 percent graduation rate with their players.
