Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Recruiting: Montaque Gill-Caeser could be leaning Michigan State

A few months ago Kentucky was considered the leader for the highly talented Junior wing from Huntington Prep Montaque Gill-Caeser, and everybody was thinking he was going to reclassify to 2014, but now both are up in the air.

Jerry Meyer tweeted yesterday that he thinks Michigan State could be the leader for Gill-Caeser because of a recent interview he had with him at the Hoop Hall Classic last weekend. Meyer stated that he got the impression he was leaning towards MSU after not even mentioning Kentucky until somebody asked about them.

I have seen Gill-Caeser play a lot over the past two seasons, and I really like his game. He reminds me a lot of Doron Lamb with a hint of Keith Bogans, and Kentucky fans love both of those names.

I have no idea where he is leaning towards, but I honestly think the Harrison Twins are coming back next season, and that would mean limited playing time for MGC coming into next season. If the Twins decide to come back Kentucky’s backcourt will be loaded, and probably be the best in the country so Calipari wouldn’t want to add another playing, and get a log jam going for next season.

Another sign that could tell Kentucky fans that he may not end up at UK is because the Kentucky staff is going hard after top 10 SG Rashad Vaughn. If Calipari could have his choice I would think he would take Vaughn anyways.

I had a conversation with Garrett Tucker from the Future150 last week, and asked him if Kentucky would add another recruit to the class of 2o14, and he said “Definitely” and also added if the Twins don’t come back they will NEED another wing to go a long with Devin Booker, and possibly James Young although everybody thinks he is going to the NBA after the season.

Almost everybody has signed in the 2014 class, but Kentucky’s class is far from over so this will be fun ending for Kentucky fans. It’s a win-win situation for Calipari and staff because if the Twins come back we have the best backcourt in the country, and if they don’t Tyler Ulis, and Dominique Hawkins will take over the duties.

One last thing can we all appreciate Karl Towns in this class? Not only is he a great player, but he never wavered in his decision to come to Kentucky, and with the randomness of this 2014 class that means a lot to me that he always wanted to come to UK.
