Alabama Takes the Next Step With Highly-Coveted 2018 Tampa-Based Cornerback, Ken Montgomery

Another game-changing scholarship offer has found its way to Ken Montgomery, one of the Sunshine State's premier cornerbacks for the class of 2018.

It was just roughly a month ago when Ken Montgomery was on the receiving end of an offer from Urban Meyer and Ohio State, so you knew additional schools would certainly take notice and dive into the mix with scholarship offers of their own, and that's exactly what's happening. 

Montgomery, a 2018 cornerback out of Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough that's registered close to three-dozen scholarship offers over the past two years, including ones from the likes of OregonTennesseeOklahomaUSCPenn StateWisconsin and Iowa, just hit the jackpot by scooping up an offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide.

"This means a lot because coach Saban and the staff were telling me how much of a priority I am to them, and how they didn't get (many) DBs for the 2017 class," Montgomery told Scout.

"I'll possibly visit in two weeks. I like that they know how to win; they only recruit guys that think about winning."

The Crimson Tide's defensive backs coach, Derrick Ansley, was the staff member that officially pulled the trigger by dishing out an offer to the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Montgomery.

"All the coaches, actually," Montgomery said when asked who he spoke with. "They were just telling me how coach Saban and the staff studied my film. The staff has been recruiting me for a couple of years, so it's been a long road.

"They also told me how they are excited to recruit me, and how I'm their main guy for the 2018 class."

Montgomery, who claims no leaders in his recruitment, also plans to visit the Buckeyes and Volunteers at some point during the spring or summer.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
