The transfer portal has been very kind to the Michigan football team as of late as they have landed four transfers in the past week. All four transfers are defensive players, and all four of them will help out the Wolverines in the secondary. One of the players that Michigan recently landed is former Tennessee defensive back Wesley Walker. Walker actually transferred to Louisville earlier this offseason, but he is now coming to Ann Arbor to play for the Wolverines.

“NEWS: Former Georgia Tech, Louisville, Tennessee transfer safety Wesley Walker has committed to Michigan,” On3 said in a tweet.

Michigan football will technically be the fourth school for Wesley Walker as he played at Georgia Tech before transferring to Tennessee. He never actually played in a game with Louisville, but he was part of the program for a little bit during this offseason. Now, he is with the Wolverines.

This is a big get for Michigan as Walker is bringing a lot of experience to the Wolverines' defense. He has played in five seasons during his career, and he has played been a solid contributor on his previous two teams.

Walker's freshman season was quiet, but he has been a good contributor in each season since then. He has racked up 36 tackles or more in all four of his other college seasons, and he totaled a career-high 53 last season. He also has two sacks in his career, one interception and three forced fumbles. Walker is a veteran player who is going to come in ready to play next season with the Michigan football team.

The Michigan football team wowed Wesley Walker and his family on their visit to Ann Arbor, and that certainly played a big role in landing his commitment. Walker's stepdad, Patrick Abernathy, had a lot of good things to say about the visit.

“It went exceptionally, actually,” Patrick Abernathy said, according to an article from 247 Sports. “It went exceptionally. He enjoyed it. My wife enjoyed it thoroughly. They really (did). Michigan really has a great setup. He loved what I call pre pro-environment. He really enjoyed how they go about their business a little bit differently, which means a lot. Going from Georgia Tech (in the) ACC, to one of the SEC's top (programs) Tennessee… he told me was no comparison. Which spoke volumes to me exactly what he thought about it.”

The visit went well, and Walker decided to commit to Michigan. The Wolverines are in great shape when it comes to their defense for next season.
