Gill Caesar talks UK visit, reclassification

Montaque "Teki" Gill Caesar talked to about his recent unofficial visit to Kentucky as well as the possibility of reclassifying to the 2014 class.

Montaque Gill Caesar, who is currently a five-star recruit in the 2015 class, took an unofficial visit to Kentucky on Sunday.

"It was great," Gill Caesar said of the trip. "Compared to the trip last year I liked it a little better. It was more hands on. I got to go into the locker room and hear [Calipari] talk to the team and all that and hear his philosophy."

Accompanied by Huntington (W.V.) Prep coach Rob Fulford, Gill Caesar arrived in Lexington around 3:00 p.m. and met with John Calipari and his staff prior to Kentucky's win over Northern Kentucky.

"Cal basically said he knows I'm good enough to play there because he saw me play against Wiggins last year and [he said] if UK is a place I can see myself at then they'd love to have the opportunity to recruit me," Gill Caesar said.

"He said it's not for everybody because of their hype and how everybody is involved at their games," he added. "He just said it wasn't for everybody. If I'm mentally tough enough to do that there would be an opportunity."

What is Gill Caesar's take on Kentucky?

"They are winners from what I know," he responded. "They obviously have an amazing reputation. They produce good basketball players and send them to the league."

To go with interest from Kentucky, the native of Canada also has a number of other high majors schools recruiting him.

"Right now the ones that keep in most contact are Michigan State, FSU, Missouri, Alabama, Providence and West Virginia."

Outside of his visit to Kentucky, Gill Caesar has also taken an unofficial visit to West Virginia.

"It's in the beginning stages," he said of his recruitment. "I don't have any favorites or anything."

Rumors recently circulated that Gill Caesar might reclassify from the 2015 class to the 2014 class. At this point, the 6-foot-5 wing is in the 2015 class, but he didn't rule out a possible move.

"I'm not too sure yet," he said. "It's still up in the air. Right now I'm still in 2015."

"I've considered it and I've thought about it," he added. "I'm still weighing the pro and cons with it."

Gill Caesar said he's not in a hurry to make a decision about reclassifying.

"It'll just be a feeling," he added. "If it's the right place for me and it'll depend on how my family is feeling about it."

Gill Caesar is currently ranked No. 18 overall in the 2015 class.
