Former MSU target Gill-Caesar to transfer from Missouri

Columbia, Mo. — Missouri forward Montaque Gill-Caesar is transferring after an injury-interrupted freshman season.

Coach Kim Anderson said Wednesday that the school would help Gill-Caesar, who would have been the school's top returning scorer (9.1 points per game), in his efforts to relocate once the player completes his academic obligations. The player has not decided where to transfer.

Gill-Caesar was a highly touted recruit entering the 2014-15 season, and chose Missouri over Michigan State, among other schools.

Gill-Caesar scored in double figures in 13 of 27 games. He injured his back against Illinois and missed the first three SEC games, averaging 12.6 points pre-injury and 6.9 points post-injury.

Johnathan Williams III, the top scorer and rebounder last season, has transferred to Gonzaga. Williams considered Michigan State after deciding to transfer from Missouri.
