Aamahd Walker picks Big West school

Shooting guard Aamahd Walker (Culver City, Calif./Culver City H.S.) ended his recruitment on Thursday night with a verbal commitment to UC Santa Barbara.

The 6-foot-4 Walker chose the Gauchos over Texas State, Eastern Washington and Cal State Northridge.

"This is a nice pick up for the Gauchos," according to ESPN.com's Joel Francisco. "He's an underrated wing who can score at all three levels."

Walker is the fifth 2012 commitment for UCSB. He joins guard Dalante Dunklin (San Diego/Francis Parker H.S.), forward Mitchell Brewe (Seattle/Seattle Prep), forward Mike Bryson(Sacramento, Calif./Foothill H.S.) and forward Sam Beeler (San Diego/Poway H.S.).
