Montgomery is a 5’10, 185 lb prospect that has played at both the running back and wide receiver positions.
247Sports’ Andrew Ivins has said this of Montgomery, “(he) can produce long gains out of the slot as his straight-line speed often times proves to be a mismatch for opposing defenses…Has a knack for making acrobatic catches, but needs to get more polished when it comes to route running in college.”
Montgomery was highly sought after as he amassed twenty four offers including Alabama, Georgia, Florida State, among many others. Ultimately, he chose the Gators over his other finalist, Maryland.
As a junior at Armwood High School in Seffner, FL, Montgomery racked up 720 yards receiving and rushed for an additional 301. He totaled 15 touchdowns as well.
Montgomery attended Florida’s Junior Day recruiting event at the beginning of March and was primarily recruited by Greg Knox. Montgomery is the Gators’ 16th commit in the 2021 recruiting cycle.
