RECRUITING: Navarro JC drawing major interest

Sooners possibly looking to add depth on the d-line with junior college talent


Montgomery's stock rose a year ago when he started as a true freshman at Navarro, which is a very solid junior college program. Montgomery was a two-year starter at Center HS in Center, Texas playing defensive tackle his junior season and defensive end his senior year. Montgomery had an outstanding senior season with 97 tackles and 10 sacks and his numbers were even better his junior season at defensive tackle with 107 tackles and three sacks.

Academics chased Montgomery to Navarro where adjusted to college ball quickly making 69 tackles and nine sacks at defensive end. He will stick to defensive end this season. Montgomery can bench 300 pounds, squats 450 and he started in hoops back in high school.

"LSU, Kansas State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Arkansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma have all either called or sent me a letter. West Virginia, LSU, Kansas State, Kentucky and Arkansas have all offered. I don't really have a favorite right now and I am keeping my options open," said Montgomery.

"I have watched Oklahoma over the last couple of years and they are one of the top programs in the country. Oklahoma is a great college and certainly a program that I would be interested in."

Montgomery is on schedule to graduate after this year.
