Walker announces intention to transfer

Redshirt junior safety Zeke Walker intends to transfer from Indiana, he announced in a message tweeted Tuesday.

Walker played in all 12 games this season for the Hoosiers, and received his first career start on Nov. 4 against Wisconsin. He made 11 tackles and recorded a key pass breakup to preserve the 41-0 shutout win over Rutgers on Nov. 18. Walker also served as an emergency quarterback late in the 2014 season, though he did not play.

“I want to thank Indiana University, Indiana Football and Hoosier nation for 4 good years of my life,” Walker wrote. “I want to give a big thanks to Coach (Tom) Allen for the past two years for teaching and instilling within us as players to Love Each Other no matter what adversity we face as a team or as a brotherhood.”

  1. Hate to see Zeke Walker leave. He is big, versatile and tough. He’s giving up a spot in the defensive backfield next year playing lots of minutes with Fields and Dutra gone. Maybe even the possibility of playing the LB spot.

  2. I hate to see him leave but with the younger players Fitzgerald and Burgess the DBs will be solid. We don’t know why he is leaving so we can’t really understand his choice. I wish him the best at his new school academically and athletically.
