Guerrero Sets First Visit

Playing with Belmont Shore, Cezar Guerrero put together a strong summer. College coaches took notice and a few threw scholarship offers his way.

Cezar Guerrero felt like he had a lot to prove this summer. After breaking his collarbone last year, the 6-foot, 170-pound lead guard put together a strong July.

"I just went out there and tried to prove the scouts and coaches that I am a force to be reckoned with," Guerrero told "I am somebody that is capable of playing at the high level."

Shortly after July, Guerrero drew rave reviews from adidas Nations in Chicago.

"I just had this confidence in myself going into it," he said. "I had just come off Arizona, where we had beaten Mac Irvin Fire, and I still felt like I had something to prove. …I just took it to adidas Nations and I just went out there and balled."

After the evaluation period, Guerrero picked up scholarship offers from Western Kentucky, UNLV, Fresno State and Colorado. He also has scored interest from Oklahoma, Auburn, Miami, LSU, St. John's, Illinois

"I get four or five calls a day from coaches," Guerrero said.

Guerrero, a standout at Bellflower (Calif.) Saint John Bosco, is planning to take his first official visit to Western Kentucky during the weekend of September 11th.

"To be honest with you I'm looking at Western Kentucky because they are recruiting me really hard," he said. "That's going to be my first visit because I want to take a visit and go see Kentucky. It's a major basketball state and has a great environment."

Guerrero said he wants to take other official visits, but at this point he hasn't set any other dates up. He also said there isn't much of a timetable for his college decision.

"If I just like the university and just love it then you could hear a commitment pretty soon from me," he said. "But if not I'll probably wait until after basketball season."
