Hillsborough High School (FL) 4-star cornerback Ken Montgomery Jr. committed to Maryland Wednesday, he announced in front of his classmates and family in his school’s auditorium.
The 6-foot-1, 165-pound cornerback had over 30 Division I offers and chose the Terps over Nebraska and Louisville.
Montgomery Jr. is the No. 33 cornerback and the No. 65 player in Florida according to 247Sports composite rankings.
The Tampa, Fla. native is the second commit for the 2018 class from the state of Florida, an area that Durkin loves to recruit from.
Montgomery Jr. will join three-star CB Vincent Flythe to solidify the cornerbacks for the Terps. Montgomery Jr. came onto Maryland’s radar after four-star CB Noah Boykin de-committed from the Terps on Jan. 24.
With JC Jackson declaring for the draft, the cornerback position was thin; but with the addition of Montgomery Jr., the Terps got better.
With this commitment, the Terps recruiting class jumped two spots up to 24th in the nation and fourth in the Big Ten.
This is Maryland’s second straight class that has finished in the top 25 and Maryland will look to bring in a better class in 2019.
