Top JUCO CB Steven Montac touches on Friday Alabama visit

Alabama hosted several talented prospects to open spring practice Friday, including emerging junior college cornerback prospect Steven Montac.

It has been a busy stretch for top junior college cornerback prospect Steven Montac. He saw several campuses over the weekend, including Alabama, and is set to see South Carolina and Georgia Monday. 

Of his time in Tuscaloosa, as the Crimson Tide opened up spring practice, he was complimentary.

"I loved Alabama," he said. "I didn't talk to the coaches much because they had practice, but the practice was a lot of competition, was very fast and organized. I could definitely see myself playing there, Alabama was a great visit.

"I did talk to coach (Jeremy) Pruitt and coach (Doug) Belk. They said they were excited to see me on campus."

Playing in 11 games for Coffeyville (Kans.) Community College as a freshman, Montac accounted for 17 total tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and half a sack in 2015. He considered graduating in December, but will now likely transfer in May of 2017.

"My recruitment is on fire right now," he said. "I have a top two of TCU and SC (South Carolina). I like 'Bama, but they aren't as interested as those two. Those are two of my favorite. 

"Fresno State and Troy have offered me. TCU wants to but they don't have scholarships free right now. But it might open up sometime soon. SC just needs to see more of me."

Montac is a Peach State native, playing his high school football at Covington (Ga.) Newton High School.
