Guerrero sees things coming together
Cezar Guerrero was forced to sit out his junior season because of transfer rules so this spring was crucial for his recruitment. The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco prospect has not wasted his opportunities.
Guerrero, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound point guard, has played well in tournaments in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Arkansas, North Carolina and others places and it's clearly helped him garner attention from teams across the country.
St. John's, Auburn, UTEP, UNLV, Arizona, Oregon State and Western Kentucky are just some of the programs recruiting Guerrero, a three-star prospect rated No. 126 in the 2011 class by Rivals.com.
His best performance probably came at the Tournament of Champions in North Carolina and Guerrero's brother, Joe, said things are definitely getting busier on the recruiting front.
"It has been picking up especially after the TOC tournament in North Carolina," Joe Guerrero said. "I think that's the best he played because I received a lot of phone calls after that week. Everyone is kind of waiting for the summer to get a better idea how he is as far as playing."
Since recruiting has just been gaining steam, Guerrero plans to be patient with schools and wants to take some official visits before making a commitment.
What he also wants to do is see how many other programs join the group recruiting him after the busy summer circuit because if Guerrero continues to play so well then more major teams could get involved.
Like many other top uncommitted recruits, Guerrero wants to see how July goes and which coaches show the most interest before a decision on official visits - and then a pledge - is made.
"We're actually waiting until the summer is over," Joe Guerrero said. "That way we can know who's really interested and that's pretty much it. We're going to wait until the end of the summer to finish it off.
"It was a pretty rough year for us. We're going to wait to see who's moving where and stuff like that and then narrow it down to five officials and go from there."
