BENTON — Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford said Friday that Duke has started recruiting Montaque Gill-Caesar and Thomas Bryant, both of whom are UK targets.
Gill-Caesar is currently in the Class of 2015, though he might reclassify to 2014 in order to play college basketball next season. UK is among many top schools that would like the 6-foot-6 forward for 2014. He also has interest from Kansas, Michigan State, Ohio State, West Virginia, Illinois and others.
Bryant is a 6-10 power forward from Rochester, N.Y., currently playing his first season at Huntington Prep. He is a member of the Class of 2015 and is also being recruited by several top programs.
Scout.com ranks Bryant as the No. 13 overall player in the junior class. Gill-Caesar is No. 18.
Huntington Prep is scheduled to play two games at the Marshall County Hoop Fest on Saturday. First up is Atlanta Sports Academy at 1:30 p.m. CT, and then a matchup with Arsenal Tech and UK signee Trey Lyles at 8 p.m.
