Orlando safety likely to visit CSU

With the high school season just past for the 9-2 Jones High School Tigers, safety prospect Cameron Montgomery is beginning to more closely examine his college options. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back said he holds four scholarship offers and will begin taking visits in Jan.

As a junior, the Orlando prep had seven interceptions, which led schools to stop throwing his way so much as a senior. This season, Montgomery collected 70 tackles, had two sacks and forced a fumble.

"Every play I give my all," he said. "I never take a play off, whether it is getting off a block or running to the ball."

Montgomery said he has scholarship offers from Middle Tennessee State, UT-Chattanooga, Florida Atlantic and Illinois State. He also took a visit from Colorado State Offensive Coordinator Pat Meyer last week. Montgomery said he plans to visit Middle Tennessee on Jan. 21, Colorado State on Martin Luther King Weekend and will also check out Chattanooga next month.

"I'm looking for a place where my techniques can get to the next level so I can reach my full potential in football," Montgomery said.

The future Sports Management Major said he is participating in the North-South All-Star Classic this weekend in Florida, but has found time to name a few favorites in the recruiting battle for his services.

"Right now, I like Colorado State, Midd Tennessee and Chattanooga," Montgomery said. "I haven't been out there (Colorado State), but from what I see is a very beautiful campus. I like the fact they recruit very heavy in my area and give us a chance to do something. I feel like MTSU is a school that can get you to the NFL because of all the scouts they lure in.

"After my last visit, I'll make my choice in those following days."
