I caught up with Monte Wednesday night, December 26th. Here is the entire interview.
Have you set up your official visits?
"Yes sir, I set up my Mississippi State visit for the weekend of January 11th. (Mississippi State) is trying to get most of us up there at the same time so that we can get to know each other."
Are you visiting any other schools?
"Yes sir, I'm going to try and visit some other schools. I've set one up to Grambling. It is February 2nd and 3rd, the weekend just before signing day. I'm trying to set up some more."
It never hurts to enjoy free recruiting trips does it?
What schools are still calling you?
"Basically, schools like Alabama State, Grambling ....... and Jackson State came in for a visit at my home. (Mississippi State assistant coach Glenn Davis called at the tail end of my conversation with Monte's dad, Coach Willie Collins.)"
I know you committed to Mississippi State a while back. Are you still committed to Mississippi State?
"I'm still pretty solid."
How is the recruiting process going? Are you still enjoying it?
"I am still enjoying it a lot."
How often do you get calls?
"I'm still getting a lot of calls. Because it is a (dead) period right now, I'm not getting as many as I was. (Coaches can only call once a week during the dead period. - Gene Swindoll)"
Thanks for taking the time to talk to me Monte.
