No need of quantum mechanics, or even atomic theory. The effect is uniform along the length of the conductor. Alternating current flows in any conductor with higher concentration at the outer surface (or the surface where the magnetic field that surrounds the conductor is, what explains what happens at the outer conductor of a coaxial cable), decaying exponentially with the distance from the surface. The distribution depends essentially on the resistitivy of the material (deeper for more resistivity) and on the frequency (deeper for smaller frequency). In coils, current is also reppelled from the other turns by the same mechanism, in what is called "proximity effect". Antonio Carlos M. de Queiroz
