Montgomery Meets Up With Spurrier

January 26, 2009 

USC head coach Steve Spurrier made his in person visit with DE Sam Montgomery (6-5 240) of Greenwood Monday. Spurrier and assistant coach Brad Lawing met with Montgomery at the school and later sat down with his mother at her office.

"That was my first opportunity to meet coach Spurrier," Mrs. Montgomery said. "He was telling me about himself and his position with Carolina football. I had never gotten his take on everything."

There are no plans for Montgomery to squeeze in a final unofficial visit to USC or Clemson Mrs. Montgomery said. "We have seen and heard everything there is to be seen and heard." She said she talked Monday night with Clemson recruiters Chris Rumph and Kevin Steele. "Both still have a chance," she said of the Gamecocks and Tigers.

Montgomery will take an official visit to Oregon Tuesday thru Thursday, and Friday thru Sunday he will be at Tennessee. He also has visited Michigan, North Carolina and LSU.

He plans to reveal his choice on ESPN on National Signing Day around 10:00 or 10:30 in the morning.
