After missing out on Andrew Wiggins from Huntington Prep (WV), John Calipari has set his sights on 2014 (if he reclassifies from 2015) Huntington Prep small forward,(# 24 ranked player in the class of 2015) Montaque Gill-Caesar. Caesar has been loosely compared to former teammate and current Jayhawk, Andrew Wiggins and after tonight's performance one can see why.
During Huntington Prep's match-up with Miami Valley (Ohio), Gill Caesar showed why he has division 1 coaches across the country salivating. He finished the night with 56 points and 9 rebounds while going 11-20 from three point range.
The bad news for Cat fans is, on the heels of making an offer to Gill-Caesar, Michigan State's Tom Izzo was in attendance to see the impressive performance.
Will Gill-Caesar end up a CAT? One can only hope. I've seen this kid play in person many, many times and he can flat out score (obviously), but more than that, he is an excellent teammate to boot. Two things any coach in America would like to see on their team.
Gill-Caesar has visited Kentucky on an unofficial visit earlier this month. He holds offers from Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas, West Virginia and a host of other schools.
