How's that for a headline? (Photo via ESPN)
Awhile back, an article from NBNMagazine (which I have not heard of since) popped up in my RSS feed. It highlighted Cezar Guerrero, a PG from California with a rather long list of suitors. Somewhat unexpectedly, Maryland was among those suitors. I never really gave it much credit, probably because I'd never heard of NBN Magazine before. But at the same time, it was always kind of tucked away in the back of my mind.
When Inside MD Sports (whom I'm probably sounding like a shill for right now, with all my links there) posted their Guide to July, Cezar Guerrero was listed as one of the 2011 prospects. Until today, when I looked it over again, I never really noticed that. But it finally clicked that maybe Guerrero was a legit prospect for the Terps. The next thing I did, understandably, was Google him. Luckily, he had some YouTube mixtapes.
Keeping in mind that this the same fanbase that questioned Greivis Vasquez for being too flashy, be prepared:
Or there's always this mix, which is just as flashy, or this one, in which he's just playing with defenders. If you couldn't handle Greivis's "flair", you better pray we don't land Cezar Guerrero. I could see it happening, though - West Coast connections are improving (commits from Stoglin and Ross, and recruiting guys like Jones, James Johnson, and Alex Kirk), Maryland needs a PG (Quinn Cook is the only PG on the board right now), and the highest profile Hispanic basketball player in perhaps the last 20 years is currently at Maryland. These signs point to Guerrero being a legitimate possibility (okay, so the last one is a stretch).
Personally, I can't wait to hail Cezar (sorry, I had to get that out of my system).
