San Diego State, which has performed like a top-four program in the Western time zone the past decade (joining the ranks of Arizona, UCLA and Gonzaga), gets Gill-Caesar’s services going forward. The 6-foot-6 wing averaged 9.1 points and 3.0 rebounds for Missouri (9-23) in 2014-15.
Gill-Caesar suffered a back injury last season, which caused him to miss three games. He’ll step in come the 2016-17 season for outgoing SDSU forward Winston Shepard. His commitment marks the second redshirt transfer for the Aztecs this offseason. The program also landed former Indiana forward Max Hoetzel back in mid-May.
