Montaque Gill-Caesar is one of the top Canadian players in the Class of 2015 and has made it onto the radar of the University of Louisville basketball staff.
The 6-foot-5, 185-pound Gill-Caesar attends Huntington, W. Va., Prep and was named co-International MVP of the Global Games with Canadian teammate Chris Egi.
Gill-Caesar has a lot of college interest. He answered a few questions for Cardinal Authority at the Nike Global:
Cardinal Authority: What offers do you have?
Gill-Caesar: "Offers, I think I have Ohio State, West Virginia, Illinois, I think Xavier, Purdue. I think those are some of the schools I have."
CA: Schools recruiting you but no offers?
Gill-Caesar: "Recruiting, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky. Those are really about it. Yeah, Louisville too. I think they called."
CA: Any favorites?
Gill-Caesar: "No, not right now, not yet."
CA: Who is coming at you the hardest?
Gill-Caesar: "I think probably Ohio State, Illinois, and Xavier, and Purdue."
CA: Have you visited any schools?
Gill-Caesar: "I took unofficial visits during the school season to West Virginia and Kentucky."
CA: Do you have a timetable for a commitment?
Gill-Caesar: "No, not at all."
CA: So what do you know about Louisville?
Gill-Caesar: "They're a great school. I watched the finals, for March Madness. I just like their team chemistry and just their reputation and just how they play."
CA: What do you think about coach Pitino?
Gill-Caesar: "He looks a cool guy. I haven't got a chance to meet him or even talk to him yet, but he looks like a very good coach and a cool guy."
CA: How much play into decision and thinking about Louisville that they won title?
Gill-Caesar: "It means a lot. I'm just not thinking about it yet. I'm kind of just taking my time."
CA: What do you think of Louisville's style of play?
Gill-Caesar: "I like their style of play, the combination of both running sets and getting up and down the floor."
CA: Are you looking for a certain type of play?
Gill-Caesar: "Probably just a school that likes to run, likes to get up and down the floor because I'm a wing so I like to get out and get transition buckets. And a team that likes to play defense."
CA: What's the strongest part of your game?
Gill-Caesar: "Probably just getting to the rim and knocking down open shots, drawing fouls, getting to the line, and just guarding multiple positions."
CA: The weakest?
Gill-Caesar: "I think right now it's just my ball handling. I just need to work on it a little bit more."
