You’ve known about EJ Montgomery’s commitment to Kentucky for over a month, but now his addition to the class is officially official.

Montgomery signed his National Letter of Intent with the university, sealing his place in UK’s 2018 class and on next year’s roster. He becomes the fourth member of the class, joining Immanuel Quickley, Keldon Johnson and Tyler Herro, although more could join via reclassification.

John Calipari said of his new power forward, “I hope our fans understand just how good EJ is and how excited we are to have him. You’re talking about a skilled big man who can affect the game in a number of ways. EJ is the type of position-less player the game is moving towards. He can play just about anywhere and make plays on the perimeter with his skills and versatility, yet he’s got the length and the ability to finish in the post as well as anyone in this class. What I love about him is he models his game after Anthony Davis, one of the best we’ve ever had, but wants to be his own player and carve out his legacy.”

Montgomery said, “My goals for picking a school was to find a program that could push me as a player to reach my dream and as a person to grow; a school that made sure me and my family’s dreams became their dreams and that would push me to be my best. I’ve found that with Coach Cal and the University of Kentucky,” Montgomery said. “I’m proud to be a part of the Big Blue Nation where the standard is excellence, which is what my mother and father have instilled in me.”

Go Cats.
