DE Sam Montgomery Profile
6-4, 220 pound defensive end Sam Montgomery out of Greenwood visited Clemson the weekend before National Signing Day.
"It was a pretty good visit" he said. "I came up with my mom and my sister. I also brought a few other family members and a friend."
What did the top junior enjoy about his visit to Tigertown?
"Clemson has a nice campus. They have very good people and they have a very, very good academic program," replied Montgomery.
Several Clemson coaches talked with the talented defender during the visit.
"I talked to a couple of the coaches. I got a chance to talk with coach Bowden, coach Vic and coach West. They basically told me they plan on recruiting one bandit this year and I'm their man. They said a lot of positive things about me coming to Clemson," said Montgomery.
The Greenwood standout already has a very impressive offer list.
"I have five offers right now. I have offers from South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina State, North Carolina and Alabama," said Montgomery.
When asked about his current favorite, Montgomery responded, "Well basically I can't say since I've only visited Clemson. As far as Clemson it is a great program. I want to see more places before I decide."
A visit to Columbia is next on the visit tour for the prize recruit.
"This weekend I am going to see South Carolina. I want to take care of the in-state schools first. Then I will probably go to North Carolina. Then I will take some official visits to some of the schools that are further away," said Montgomery.
Don't expect an early commitment from the Palmetto state standout.
"I think I will make my decision later on next year. It will probably be near the end of next year. I want to take a lot more visits. I want to show a lot more people the respect for giving me a full scholarship," said Montgomery.
As a junior Montgomery recorded 65 total tackles including 15 sacks and a forced fumble.
