Cayce, a 6-foot-1 guard, redshirted last season with the Jayhawks after walking on. According to verbalcommits.com, he will also walk on at Illinois.
Here are Cayce’s high school highlights. He averaged 9.8 points and 2.8 assists per game as a senior, and as a junior, La Lumiere School was ranked No. 5 nationally by USA Today.
Cayce is a skilled perimeter shooter with an unorthodox release. Via whiteandbluereview.com, Creighton head coach Greg McDermott said last year that “Drew can shoot the daylights out of the basketball. He’s learning and the physical nature of the college game has been an adjustment for him, but he’s been a great teammate. We’re glad to have him on the team.”
