According to 247 Sports’ Evan Daniels, five-star recruit E.J. Montgomery has scheduled an unofficial visit to Kentucky for February 24th.
Montgomery is considered the No. 12 player in the class of 2018, and the second-best remaining uncommitted recruit.
The 6-foot-10 power forward out of Marietta, Georgia also has visits scheduled to North Carolina on Monday, and then Duke on Wednesday.
Montgomery has trimmed his final list to UK, UNC, Duke, South Carolina, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, USC, Georgia, Clemson and UCLA, but most feel his recruitment will come down to the blue blood programs.
Duke has gotten the most buzz since he decommitted from Auburn, with the draw of joining the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class and earning immediate playing time in the frontcourt being major factors.
That being said, John Calipari and Kenny Payne visited Montgomery last week, and Payne visited the talented forward the week before, swinging some of that momentum back Kentucky’s direction.
With the Kentucky coaching staff getting Montgomery on campus, all bets are off.
Bring him on home, Cal.
