Five-Star EJ Montgomery Was in Rupp Arena Last Night

It was a big night for the current Cats, rolling to a third straight win behind a full team performance with Jarred Vanderbilt and Kevin Knox leading the way.

Another pretty talented big man was in the building last night as the No.6 overall player in the 2018 class, EJ Montgomery, made his official visit to Lexington over the weekend.

Kenny Payne led Montgomery and his family on a tour of the court just before the team began warming up, conversing with the family as they settled in for their first game experience at Rupp.

Kevin Knox also came over to Montgomery to say hello after making his way onto the floor as the two know each other from playing against one another on the AAU circuit.

Montgomery, the top available big man in his class, has narrowed his list down to Kentucky, Duke, and North Carolina with Duke(surprise) being the favorite to land his services.  He visited both Duke and UNC last weekend.

If Calipari can sway the five-star to join Keldon Johnson, Tyler Herro, and Immanuel Quickley in the 2018 class it would be one of Cal’s biggest recruiting wins in recent years.

Come on home, EJ.

    If he goes to duke I’m gonna enjoy the train wreck of 4 forwards and a guard.

      Couldn’t agree more. Everyone thinks they’ve cut down the nets next year but they have 3 ball dominant forwards with 1 guard. It’s gonna be a much bigger mess than they think. They’re losing all of their experience and Ksnrbchski is going to have an uphill battle trying to figure out an all freshman team

      If he goes to Duke it just means they outbid UK. Nothing personal because I doubt he cares which school. Show him the $$$.

    How long till the fbi catches Capel? It’s so obvious at this point it’s hilarious.

      Word is he is next in line; knows the recruiting ropes (despite the OK gig). The man is unclean. Mike is teflon.

      Coach K is the Pole – off which uavel wanted recruits to enjoy.

      Never was gonna happen.

      So uavel ‘farrd’ legendary Denny Crum and ‘harrd’ Hrrrrrick Puhteeno.

      Fools gold- ignorance.

      Capel will be a fall guy – again.

      And, he’ll laugh all the way to the bank.

      And – the NBA.

      Yeah clearly bc we didn’t get Knox last year when they were the favorite for him.

    Why’s everybody got to have a smart ass opinion when someone else makes a opinion

      In case you’re new to this site catcasey1, that’s what they do. Just do like I do and read comments occasionally for laughs because it’s 90% trolls and smart asses.

      And morons. (see Bull Filmer).

      Because this site and message board is full of a bunch of snowflakes who jump your ass as soon as you say something negative about the cats or an individual player. Their feelings get hurt. A lot of ppl on here think Cal is perfect and our players can do no wrong. It’s laughable

      I’m with you! Lots of people on here think they know everything.. It’s EASY to make negative comments toward someone else’s comments sitting behind their computer or phone….

    dook will continue to enjoy the ‘get out of jail free’ card – until MAT JONES does something about it.

    Matt – you are up: Use that degree to persuade the dookies to leave the darkest side.

    Meanwhile and don’t get your hope’s up – I hate that uavel is cleaning up their act, what with hiring another KENTUCKY grad.

    Again.

    On the one hand, their 16 year plan included the incline which seemingly worked – to get out of the Metro.

    But, cheating will land you in trouble
    – and then to bottom of the ACC.

    However, it ‘came’ – like a firehose – at a cost.

    And, both Tommy Turtleneck and HrrrrrIck Puuuuhhteeeenoh were PAID handsomely.

    Ultimately,’business’ is bigger than that.

    Looking forward to the NBA in Louisville.

    Honestly that young man has a feel for the game it’s obvious he has some AD’esque moves down low can shoot a 3 or 2 at times and can pass the ball not quite a point guard but he absolutely could bring it up the court if need be but in recruiting the other blue blood programs will for sure try to recruit him but there’s only one that matters and that’s BIG BLUE the NBA is waiting why not start here
