Former Missouri Tigers guard Montaque Gill-Caesar will visit Oregon next week. Matt Prehm of 247 Sports reported the story and offered further detail on the visit.
Gill-Ceasar will be on campus Monday through Wednesday for an official visit where he’ll spend time with Oregon’s staff, players, and get a feel for the campus. He is also considering taking visits to San Diego State, Iowa State, and Baylor.
A former four-star recruit out of West Virginia’s Huntington Prep, Gill-Caesar struggled in his sole season in Columbia and averaged 9.1 points per game while shooting just 36 percent from the field. Missouri struggled as a team too, going 9-23 (3-15 SEC) and finishing dead last in the SEC in its first season under coach Kim Anderson.
Should Gill-Caesar ultimately commit to Oregon, he would be joining a team that has enjoyed success in recent years under coach Dana Altman, not to mention one that would need help on the wing come the 2016-17 campaign. Gill-Caesar has the size for that position at 6-foot-6, 215 pounds and considering how the Ducks have gone 123-57 (55-35 Pac-12) with one conference title and three consecutive trips to the NCAA Tournament in five years under Altman, Gill-Caesar would be wise to strongly consider taking his talents to Eugene.
Campus Sports will update Gill-Caesar’s decision as more information becomes public.
