It looks like 6-10 E.J. Montgomery could be the perfect fit for what UK needs next season after the Georgia five-star forward recently made his verbal commitment to Kentucky.
“E.J. had glimpses of greatness during the McDonalds All American practices. There were a couple times he surprised everyone in the gym with a putback dunk or a nice block and it’s surprising because he’s such a quiet kid,” Rivals.com basketball writer Krysten Peek said.
“He’s not very vocal on the court like Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley, so when the quiet players do something ridiculous it always draws a reaction. He’s tough in the lane but also has a nice mid-range jumper.
“I would say he’s not as strong as PJ Washington but his outside game is much better.”
