Remember Maurice Walker?  The 6'10'' bruiser from Canada?  The one that we all hoped and prayed would commit to Georgetown and cried after he had reportedly decided on Pitt.

Well Adam Zagoria is reporting that Walker will trim his list later this week.

Zagoria reports:

Craig Walker [Maurice's father] said the current list for his son includes Seton Hall, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Marquette and St. John’s. He added that South Florida, Oregon State and Memphis have also expressed interest.

"My thoughts are that Maurice  will probably stay in the East somewhere," Craig said. "As parents, we’d rather he play in the East side of the country in the Big East. We know we can hop on a plane and be there in an hour."

With regards to actual schools, Walker comments:

"We’ve always been interseted [sicin Pitt. They’re playing really good basketball right now." 

"Georgetown, we’ve been interested as well. They’ve show some interest. The coaches from Georgetown have gone up a couple times," he added.

In a scouting report, Rivals states:

At 6-foot-10 and 270-pounds, Walker casts an imposing shadow on the basketball floor. A big man with good hands and solid footwork, Walker has focused on getting in better shape and being more consistent in his time at Brewster.

He is currently ranked #118 in the Class of 2010 and is listed as #12 for centers.

He would be a fine addition to a team desperate for some big bruisers in the paint.
