Montgomery-DeLaurier shows improvement
This past June at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, Javin Montgomery-DeLaurier, a 6-foot-8, 205-pound power forward, showed promise as a rim protector and rebounder. Fast-forward to this past weekend at the John Lucas Midwest Invitational and Montgomery-DeLaurier was even more effective in those areas, plus showed improvement and a sense of confidence. “My thing is sometimes my shot isn’t going to fall, but I can always affect the game by playing hard,” Montgomery-DeLaurier told Scout.com. And that’s exactly what Montgomery-DeLaurier did during the two-day event in Louisville (Ky.). Montgomery-DeLaurier ran rim to rim, used his athleticism in the paint, rebounded in and out of his area and contested shots. Montgomery-DeLaurier, a junior at Charlottesville (Va.) St. Anne’s-Belfield School, is starting to garner college interest. “It’s going well,” he said. “The past month has been great. I think I’ve gotten another four offers from Kansas State, Princeton among others. It’s going good. I’m enjoying it.” Montgomery-DeLaurier claims offers from Kansas State and Princeton, as well as VCU, George Mason, Mount. St. Mary’s, Hampton, UC-Davis and Rice. Montgomery-DeLaurier took an unofficial visit to Princeton last weekend. “I really enjoyed it,” Montgomery-DeLaurier said about his Princeton visit. “It’s a beautiful campus. They have a great coaching staff.” Montgomery-DeLaurier also said he’s visited also visit Virginia four times. “They are right in my backyard,” he said. “Last year I think coach Bennett got a chance to show what he’s all about. I think their program is headed in the right direction.”
