Happy Monday Big Blue Nation!
John Calipari is starting the week on fire by adding the E.J. Montgomery to the 2018 recruiting class. Evan Daniels reports the 6’10” power forward and No. 12 player overall has committed to Kentucky over Duke, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. Montgomery told Daniels that Cal’s track record with NBA players put UK over the top.
“It’s a big factor because my parents just wanted me to go to a school that I can get develop the most,” Montgomery told 247Sports. “Their track record with their players in the NBA shows that they’re pretty good at it.”
“It was a pretty hard decision,” he added. “I had to talk about the pros and cons about every school. I just had that feeling that Kentucky was the place for me”.
The first big man to commit to Kentucky in 2018, the Cats’ class is now ranked second, only behind Duke.
