Terrance Montgomery, WR From LA, Commits to Golden Bears

Thanks to drub12 for the update!

5-foot-11, 180-pound senior wide receiver Terrance Montgomery (Los Angeles/West Adams) has committed to Cal, ESPN’s Greg Biggins reports.

"I’m a Bear," he said. "I’m so excited to be going to Cal with all their prestige and tradition. Signing day is just a week and a half away and I was starting to get a little stressed out. No one else had offered a scholarship or even a visit and then all of a sudden, I got the call from Cal about coming up this weekend."

Montgomery caught 42 passes for just over 700 yards and 13 touchdowns this fall, earning first team all-city honors.

He posted an electronically-timed 4.86 40-yard dash, 4.42 20-yard shuttle and 28.7-inch vertical at the Los Angeles Nike Combine prior to his senior year.

This comes as a little bit of a surprise, considering none of the recruiting services listed Montgomery, but hopefully the Cal recruiting staff hit another unheralded gem here. He is the first player ever from West Adams to be offered a scholarship, so maybe the lack of the school's street cred placed him way under the radar.

Shadwhand found his highlight video. solarise also noticed that the man has some speed on the track.
