The Central Michigan University football program has received a verbal commitment from one of the top running backs in the state of Illinois' 2012 recruiting class.

Chippewas Insider has learned that running back Martez Walker of Chicago Brother Rice High School has verbally committed to Central Michigan University.

A 5-foot-10, 185-pound standout, Walker received a scholarship offer from the Chippewas last month. He was also receiving recruiting interest from a number of Bowl Championship Subdivision schools, including Illinois, Purdue and Wisconsin.
