The last time a member of the Walker family came up to visit Berkeley, they came bearing gifts. Several weeks back, Patricia Walker – mother of four-star 2015 forward Cameron Walker -- brought home-made fried chicken and other goodies to drop off for the California basketball staff, on her way to another function in the Bay Area, and this time, she might bring along some desert, along with her talented son, of course.
"My mom and dad are coming with me," Cameron Walker said. "She might just bake them cookies or something."
The trip will be Walker's first up to Berkeley since the staff change. The last time he was up for a visit was roughly one year ago, and he already has a list of what he wants to find out about this new bunch.
"Probably just to learn their style of play, because I'm not too familiar with that," Walker said. "We're just getting to know them better and building relationships and just being able to see the campus again will be nice, talking to some of the academic people, and the strength coach, things like that."
Hardly a day goes by when he doesn't have some kind of communication with the Bears, particularly assistant coach Yanni Hufnagel.
"I talk to one of them at least every other day, but the last time I talked to coach Huf was on Sunday, and he said he would call me Friday, because he didn't want to interrupt me during finals week, so I haven't talked to him in a little bit, but I talk to him a lot."
The Bears, along with the other members of Walker's top eight – UCLA, Florida, Harvard, San Diego State, Stanford, Arizona State and Colorado – have been recruiting Walker the hardest as of late.
"Those are the main schools that have been coming after me, so those are the main schools that I'm looking at," he said.
Walker will make his visit to Berkeley after turning in his final project for Advanced Placement Environmental Science and taking his last final. He will drive up with both of his parents and spend all day on Saturday checking out the new staff.
