Source: Guerrero’s contact limited with WKU through signing period

Cole Claybourn

It’s been five days since the NCAA’s Early Signing Period began, and all but one of WKU’s committed recruits has faxed a National Letter of Intent.

The one is St. John Bosco (Calif.) point guard Cezar Guerrero.

Guerrero, a four-star player rated by, announced his commitment to WKU on Oct. 15 via the social networking site USTREAM.

But a source close to the situation told the Herald on Sunday that Guerrero could be second-guessing his verbal commitment based on location. More than 2,000 miles separate Bowling Green and Belliflower, Calif., Guerrero’s hometown.

Guerrero also holds scholarship offers from Indiana, Kansas and Oklahoma, as well as several other mid-major schools, according to Among his local options are offers from Cal State Northridge, Fresno State, Loyola Marymount and California-Irvine.

Guerrero hasn’t been answering or returning correspondence from members of WKU’s 2011 class, according to the source, who also said communication between Guerrero and the WKU coaching staff has been limited.

Head Coach Ken McDonald cannot comment until Guerrero signs a National Letter of Intent, and attempts by the Herald to reach Guerrero have been unsuccessful since last Tuesday.

The Early Period runs through Wednesday. Should Guerrero take more time on his decision, he could next sign during the NCAA’s Regular Period, which runs from April 13-May 18.

With six commitments for the 2011 class and just five players on the current roster set to exhaust eligibility after this season, WKU could potentially over-sign with the 2011 class.

Another potential point guard for the 2011 class, Christian County (Ky.) standout Anthony Hickey, told the Herald on Friday that he hasn’t been in contact with WKU recently and didn’t see himself as a backup plan in case Guerrero doesn’t sign with WKU.
