2015 Santa Maria (Calif.) Righetti power forward Cameron Walker is up to ten offers and is bound to collect more through the July evaluation period as his Compton Magic AAU team continues to draw a crowd no matter which gym they're playing in.

Walker's offers include Oregon State, San Jose State, California, Cal Poly, UC Irvine, Fresno State, USC, San Diego State, Rice, and Florida.

At this point in the process, the 6-foot-6 195-pound prospect says none are standing out, but that he is fairly confident he will want to play his college career on the West Coast. "I just like being closer to home, having my family be able to come to my games and being by my friends, too," Walker told FOX Sports NEXT at Battle at the Beach." The three-star recruit did say that although his preference is to stay West, he will be taking a closer look into his offer from Florida, "I definitely want to go to Florida on an official visit," he said.

"If it comes down to it, I'll go to an East Coast school but I mean, I just prefer the West Coast.

Walker recently took an unofficial visit to USC, one of three Pac-12 programs he has an offer from. "I'm pretty interested in them," Walker said. ". I like the campus a lot. It was Coach [Tony] Bland who took me around and I went to Coach [Andy] Enfield's office and talked to him so I liked it a lot."

While in Enfield's office, Walker says they discussed the new head coach's plan to install the same offense he ran at Florida Gulf Coast, which the nation saw during the NCAA tournament. "I liked their style of play," Walker said. "Fast paced, highlight dunks, I liked that a lot."

Walker has also taken a handful of other unofficials in California including trips to Pepperdine, Fresno State, UC Irvine, UCLA, SDSU, Cal, SJSU, and "a couple others".

He has been to the Bruins campus twice and says he really likes UCLA's staff and campus.

The 2015 recruit is in no rush to make any long-term decision, telling FOX Sports NEXT that he is still wide open, no single program is standing out, and that he'll make a decision his senior year.
