Wide receiver | 6-1 | 190
Montgomery gained national attention for making an unbelievable one-handed catch (see video) in a Florida state title game in December, a grab that made it all the way to SportsCenter.
But Montgomery’s talent goes far beyond one catch. The 6-1 wide receiver had 199 receiving yards in that contest alone, setting a state championship single-game record.
Committed to Wake Forest at the beginning of the season, Montgomery backed out of that pledge and eventually picked Kentucky over Louisville, N.C. State, Ole Miss, Central Florida and others. Rivals.com ranks Montgomery as the No. 51 overall wide receiver in the class of 2013.

“He can take over a game. He’s that talented. He’s one of the better athletes in the county. He just can do so many things.”
