Gill-Caesar transfers from Mizzou

Sophomore guard Montaque “Teki” Gill-Caesar will transfer from Mizzou’s men’s basketball program, the team announced Wednesday afternoon. Gill-Caesar averaged 9.1 points per game in the 2014-2015 season.

“We wish Montaque the best,” Missouri head coach Kim Anderson said in a sttement. “In an evolving conversation this week, Montaque informed our program of his future plans. He intends to resume his education and playing career at a different institution.

Gill-Caesar is a former top-prospect. He was a four-star recruit according to Rivals, attending Huntington Prep where current MU assistant Rob Fulford coached before arriving in Columbia.

“We will assist him in every way possible in that transition, pending the completion of academic obligations he committed to with our staff,” Anderson continues in his statement. Our program cannot thank Montaque and his family enough for being a part of the Mizzou Basketball Family.”

“I want to thank the Mizzou Basketball program for its support, as well as thanks to all of the fans and people of Columbia who made me feel so welcome,” Gill-Caesar said in a statement through the university. “I’d like to continue my college basketball career at a school where I am most comfortable. I certainly hope to see plenty of success for my friends on the team and the Mizzou coaching staff in the future.”

Mizzou will have one scholarship going forward with the departure of Gill-Caesar.
