Kentucky hasn’t formally offered 2015 wing Montaque “Teki” Gill-Caesar but he apparently has an open invitation to join the program.
“From my understanding, just in conversation, if Teki wanted to go to Kentucky, he can go to Kentucky,” Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told Ben Roberts of NextCats.
Those comments echo what Fulford told SNY.tv recently following Gill-Caesar’s unofficial visit to Kentucky.
“They have to bring in more guys,” Fulford told SNY.tv. “Obviously, losing most of the current team, they need guys that can come in and play. He knows that Teki is good enough, whether ’14 or ’15.”
Kentucky assistant Orlando Antigua watched Gill-Caesar go for 13 points Saturday night in a 64-43 win over St. Louis Christian in Hazard, Ky.
Ranked 19th in the class of 2015 by ESPN, Gill-Caesar has drawn comparisons to fellow Canadian Andrew Wiggins.
The 6-foot-6 Gill-Caesar, who currently holds offers from Providence, Illinois, Baylor, Memphis, Purdue, Missouri, West Virginia and Alabama, has yet to decide whether he will reclass to 2014 from 2015, similar to the way Wiggins moved up a class.
“He has no business being in 2015,” Fulford told Roberts. “That’s just my opinion. I hope he does what’s best for him, but why stay an extra year when you don’t need to?”
