Ken McDonald may have found his biggest fish yet.

Cezar Guerrero, a four-start point guard from Bellflower, Calif., officially announced his intention to play basketball for McDonald and Western Kentucky on Friday.

Guerrero, rated as the 61st best player in the country according to, joins three-star commits Derrick Gordon, of St. Patrick (N.J.) High School, George Fant, of Warren Central High School and Deng Leek, of Veritas (N.C.) Academy in McDonald’s 2011 class.

“It felt like home,” Guerrero told the Daily News on Friday. “It felt like I was here in California, it felt really comfortable and I really liked being there – the people, the coaches, everybody.

“It was about feeling at home, all the coaches made me feel like I was at home.”

Guerrero – who made his announcement on the social networking site USTREAM – made his official visit to WKU on the weekend of Sept. 18, the same day as the Hilltopper football team’s home opener against Indiana.

The 6-0, 175-pound point guard other offers, according to, came from Cal State Northridge, Colorado, Fresno State, Indiana, Loyola Marymount and UC-Irvine.

Known for his all-around game from the point guard position, Guerrero is currently ranked as the country’s 14th best point guard for 2011, according to

He also becomes just the second four-star player to commit to McDonald during his three years at WKU, as former four-star prospect Terrence Boyd gave McDonald a pledge prior to the 2009-10 season.

Boyd never actually played in a game as a Hilltopper, however, as he was dismissed from the squad before the start of the season.

Guerrero, however, has every intention of becoming a Hilltopper – and says he can’t be more excited to get started.

“It feels great to have all the pressure lifted of making a decision,” he said. “A lot of people told me to wait and see with the decision, but I didn’t want to. I wanted to get it over with because I knew Western Kentucky was my new home.

“Western Kentucky’s got something big coming to them (with this class), it’s going to be ridiculous.”
