    SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Maurice Walker is taking his time.

    The No. 12 center in the Class of 2010, Walker is currently on spring break from Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy and is mulling his college options.

    The 6-10, 300-pound Walker said he’s considering Rutgers, Seton Hall, Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Virginia, UConn, Marquette, Penn State, Providence and Minnesota and has offers from all of those except Georgetown and UConn.

    Asked if he had any favorites, Walker listed Pittsburgh and Minnesota. He has visited Pitt and will trip to Minnesota April 9.

    There has been speculation about whether Pitt has a scholarship to offer, but Walker said he was told that a scholarship would be available.

    “They didn’t have one available for a while but coach called last week to say they do now,” said Walker.

    Player movement at Pitt is expected.

    Walker said he likes what Pitt has done in the past with bigs like DeJuan Blair, Tyrell Biggs and Sam Young.

    “I like Pitt a lot,” he said. “I went on a visit. I like the people, the ccaches and the players. My parents liked what they saw when they went, too. It’s a place that makes me feel at home and has a good past with players like me.”
    Walker said he’s still considering Seton Hall even though they are undergoing a coaching search.
    “I’m waiting to see what happens with the situation,” he said.

    Walker said he hopes to decide sometime before the late signing period.
    “As soon as possible but hopefully sometime before the end of the late signing period,” Walker said.
