South's No. 22 CB Ken Montgomery Pencils in Multi-Day Visit With ACC School

Fresh off yet another SEC offer, 2018 cornerback Ken Montgomery also has a multi-day visit scheduled with a school representing the ACC.

Ken Montgomery entered the week with already 30 offers to choose from, but continues to make a splash in the headlines with Mississippi stepping up with an offer on Wednesday.

Montgomery, a rangy 2018 cornerback out of Tampa (Fla.) Hillsborough, is not ready to trim down his lengthy list of suitors, but says AlabamaOhio StatePenn StateUCLA and Arkansas are recruiting him the hardest at this time.

"(Wide receivers) coach (Jacob) Peeler pretty much told me how they are very interested in me, and how they need talented DBs with ball skills like myself," Montgomery said.

"The defensive coach loved my film. They just wanted to make sure they get me on board because they said they are coming after me."

The South's 22nd-ranked cornerback plans to make full use of his offseason with a flurry of visits scheduled to take place, including one to North Carolina for June 18-22.

"(Tight ends) coach (Chad) Scott is a really special guy to me, and every time we talk he sounds like a father figure to me," Montgomery said. "I like how hard coach Scott recruits me. He makes me feel good about coming in and making a difference.

"He just told me that I can make a huge difference and an early impact because they don't have an athlete like me on the defensive side."

Montgomery lists Penn StateOhio State and Mississippi as additional visit destinations for over the summertime.
