Teki still debating future

There are some big decisions to be made for five-star Teki Gil Caesar.

One of the more interesting situations playing out is that of Teki Gill Caesar. The Toronto native who is now at Huntington (WV) Prep is already a five-star prospect in the 2015 class, but he does have the option to enroll in college as soon as next season.

This Huntington Prep squad is a young team, and Gill Caesar is being relied upon in a big way, and so far he feels his play has been solid.

"Personally I think I need to be a little more consistent on the offensive end, and then on defense I have to be a lockdown defender and then be more focused at staying in help side in case my teammate gets beat," said Gill Caesar.

Along with just production in terms of points and rebounds, Gill Caesar knows he has another responsibility on this team.

"I have to be more of a vocal guy this year," Gill Caesar explained. "I have to lead by example as well by being a scorer and a lock down defender who also will rebound and do the little things."

Recruiting wise there is a long list of schools making him a priority.

"West Virginia, Michigan State, Providence, Alabama, Florida State, and Kansas have been the main schools," he explained. "I hear still hear from Kentucky a little bit."

The biggest question with Gill Caesar is will he remain in 2015 or re-class forward to the 2014 class.

"It is a possibility but I don't know yet," he explained of the decision. "I will ask my mom, my coaches, and find out what they think about it, and then also what I feel is best for me."

While that decision could change his recruitment, right now all of the programs recruiting him just want to get him to sign on the dotted line, no matter when that may be.

One school in specific really turning up the heat is Michigan State. The Spartans have him as a major priority at the moment.

"I like how they play and get up and down the court," he said of the Spartans. "Also I like how they are all around the place on defense. Coach (Tom) Izzo is a great coach, and they have told me Gary (Harris) might leave, so they want somebody to fill his role as a shooter and a defender on the wing."

Another school picking up the intensity in the recruitment is West Virginia. Bob Huggins has been a mainstay at games trying to get Gill Caesar in the fold.

"Coach Huggins is telling me I can come in and be an impact guy, and that he really likes that I can do a lot of different things," said Gill Caesar. "I liked their fan base and how the school treats the players. It is a place I definitely like."

A school with a big time connection to Gill Caesar is Kansas. Andrew Wiggins and Gill Caesar have been friends since childhood, and that has the Jayhawks very much in the mix.

"They are just telling me that they want me to come in and just be someone who can shoot the ball, play defense, and fill a role," he said of KU. "Basically it is stuff like that."

For now Gill Caesar is focused on his season, but soon a decision is likely to come on not only where he will go to college, but when he will get there.
