Montague "Teki" Gill-Caeser, a former top-50 recruit, who played his freshman season at Missouri last year, announced his plans to transfer to San Diego State on Thursday night.

Gill-Caeser, a guard who stands at six-foot-six and weighs 215 pounds, was also interested in Iowa State, Baylor and Oregon before committing to the Aztecs.

Missouri coach Kim Anderson announced Gill-Caeser's intention to transfer from the school on July 15. ESPN College Basketball insider Jeff Goodman reported that Gill-Caeser's decision to move on was mutual between him and Missouri.

"I want to thank the Mizzou Basketball program from its support, as well as thanks to all of the fans and people of Columbia who made me feel so welcome," Gill-Caeser said through Goodman.

Gill-Caeser averaged 9.1 points and three rebounds for Missouri. The Tigers finished 9-23 last season.

Gill-Caesar visited Oregon earlier this month, according to Matt Prehm of 247Sports, but eventually decided to join the Aztecs.

Gill-Caeser was ranked as a five-star prospect in the 2015 recruiting class after starring at Huntington Prep High School (Huntington, West Virginia). Instead of staying in the 2015 class, Gill-Caeser enrolled a year early at Missouri and reclassified to the 2014 recruiting class.

San Diego State also added former Indiana forward Max Hoetzel this offseason. Both Gill-Caeser and Hoetzel will have to wait a year before playing for the Aztecs, per NCAA transfer rules.
