LAS VEGAS -- In about six weeks, students at all levels will begin another year of school.

Montaque Gill-Caesar is also in that group, but he doesn't know yet if it will be in college or high school.

"Both of the options are still there," Gill-Caesar said. "It's 50/50 right now. I still don't know what I'm doing yet."

Gill-Caesar, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, is No. 35 in the 247Sports Composite ranking for the class of 2015. For more than a year, though, there's been discussion of him reclassifying to 2014. It seemed to quiet down in the spring, but Missouri hiring Rob Fulford -- Gill-Caesar's high school coach at Huntington Prep (W.Va.) brought it back to the forefront.

Gill-Caesar even took a visit to Missouri shortly after Fulford was hired as an assistant coach under Kim Anderson.

"I like the atmosphere. It’s a basketball town. The coaches are cool, the players are cool. I really liked it," he said. "Having someone there that I’m comfortable with, I’ve been with him for two years. That would make the transition easier.”

Academically, Gill-Caesar would certainly qualify and be able to enter college a year early, but he's been going back and forth on what he will do.

"Some of the cons of going 2014 is, you know, maybe you're not ready. You're going to college a little bit early, maybe you're going to sit on the bench," he said. "But one of the [pros] is, what's the point of waiting another year? You get to college, it's a little more experience instead of another year of high school. I just have to weigh out both options."

Michigan State, Florida State, Providence, Marquette and Indiana have also been recruiting Gill-Caesar.
