So we heard that 2013 commitment Derek Willis would be visiting our lovely city this weekend, but many people are unaware that two other potential recruits are also in town for a visit. Dominic Woodson, a class of 2013 center that lists UK among his final ten schools, made the trip up from Huntington Prep, as did Montaque Gill-Caesar (below), a relatively unknown class of 2015 wing player who plays with Andrew Wiggins on a regular basis.
After playing his freshman year at Ontario’s Vaughan Secondary School, Gill-Caesar recently transferred to Huntington Prep, and it’s safe to say that his move to the States will garner him some more attention from recruiting services. Last month, NBE Basketball ranked him the 15th best prospect in his class, but other than that, Gill-Caesar has largely stayed off the recruiting radar. His coach at Huntington Prep notes that Gill-Caesar “doesn’t back down” from Wiggins, and those who have seen Gill-Caesar play are impressed by his athleticism, strength, and shooting. If all that is true, it seems like we’ll be hearing a lot more about him as recruiting season heats up.
