Walker impressed by Tempe visit

Being in attendance for one of Arizona State's best performances of the season, a 72-51 win over Colorado, was naturally immaculate timing for Cameron Walker's unofficial trip to ASU. Yet, there were other aspects of his visit that the Santa Maria (Calif.) standout enjoyed as he learned more about the Sun Devil program.

"The visit went very well and I enjoyed it," Walker said. "I met with all the coaches and the players, the academic advisor and went to the game. I was really impressed with their facilities, especially the practice facility. I was also impressed with how tight-knit they are and how they are all one big family. That was cool to see.

"The coaches thought I could fit in well in their system because I get up and down the floor, run in the fast break, play the pick and roll on offense and just be a great addition to their team. I think do a good job creating shots for myself and my teammates. I'm a very fast and athletic player. I need to work more on my ball handling and my strength."

The highlight of his visit was attending the aforementioned contest versus the Buffaloes, which obviously caught his eye in terms of the ability and potential of the Arizona State program.

"I thought very highly of the team after watching them and that was a good win against Colorado," Walker remarked. "Even though they (Colorado) didn't have Spencer Dinwiddie it was a convincing win and I like how they (ASU) played. I really like their offense and they were quick up and down the court."

The 6-6 195-pound Cameron Walker plays for Compton Magic, one of the powerhouse AAU Clubs in the Western region. Aside from Arizona State he has offers from California, Florida, Oregon State, San Diego State, UCLA, USC and Washington State.

"Arizona State is up there with one the schools that are recruiting me the hardest," Walker stated. "I don't have a short list of schools because it's hard for me to choose. But I think I will have one pretty soon. I know Arizona State is definitely one school I will take an official visit to. I would love to be there again.

"When I'm going to make my decision I will look at academics. That is a big thing for me because I have good grades and you need something to fall back on if basketball doesn't work out. Location is also important. I'd prefer to be on the West Coast, but if there is an East School that is very appealing to me I would go there. Last thing is how I fit on a team and if I could come in and play immediately and get along with the coaches and players."
