"Michigan just called today to see how I was doing," Montgomery told GoBlueWolverine Wednesday. "I told them I'm going to get back with them soon (about the visit) because I've got something going on with the Shrine Bowl. I don't know for sure that I can make it on (December 6th)."
Montgomery has long maintained a strong desire to travel to the Great Lake State so he can determine whether he'll have the same glowing feelings about Michigan's campus that he does the city of Detroit. The tough season in Ann Arbor has done nothing to dim that yearning.
"I don't care about (the season)," he said. "It depends more on what I think I can do when I get there… if I can make an impact. They're telling me I could play right away. I played DE, DT, and LB. Now they see I can play LB so they can play with where to put me some. That just opens up more opportunities and more chances for me start."
Getting Montgomery on campus for a December visit could prove to be crucial to the chances of landing him for many of his suitors, including Michigan. Otherwise there may not be another opportunity to host him.
"I'll make either my decision on signing day or the Under Armour game," he said. "I just might do something (during the game). I might see everybody getting all happy and stuff I might throw the hat on my head too."
An All Star game decision would mean that there are only three visit weekends up for grabs since the Dead Period prohibiting both on and off-campus contact begins on December 22nd. For the time being, Montgomery is still planning to take all of his trips.
