THE PLAYER SPEAKS | The news about the commitment happened late Monday night, so we don't have much. ESPN got this one-liner from Montgomery:
"There was something about them when I went there for junior day," Montgomery said. "The coaches are great. It just felt right."
SCOUTING REPORT | Projectable, high ceiling and athletic. Keep those adjectives in mind.
The first thing that you note about Montgomery is that he's not even done growing yet and hasn't filled out yet, weighing in at 245 or so. This should not be a concern if a player is athletic and Montgomery is athletic. Sorta reminds me of Le'Raven Clark in a way. Big skinny kid that is fast.
And yes, he is fast. Pay no attention to what you might think is a slow 40-yard dash time because most of the time, those times are inflated. That's probably very accurate for a guy his size.
Lots of good things to look at in his film. Gets to the second level very quickly. He sticks with his man in that he doesn't give up on a play and he moves his feet really well. Montgomery can turn in space quite easily and looks agile doing it. He doesn't have a ton of pancake blocks because of his size and strength, but that can eventually happen once he fills out.
You're probably a bit nervous at this point with the lack of stars next to a player's name. I've got a lot more thoughts on that coming soon.
Mildren, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
