E.J. Montgomery
Quietly helps spark turnaround
February 3, 2019
Montgomery provided three rebounds across 10 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 65-54 victory over Florida.
Montgomery hasn't necessarily been lighting up box scores this season, but he was one of Saturday's unsung heroes, grabbing several key offensive rebounds to keep possessions alive and help cut into the deficit. He might not play a major role in this year's Kentucky rotation, but it would be unwise to discount the five-star freshman in dynasty formats. At just 13.7 minutes per game, he likely hasn't shown enough to warrant much NBA attention come June, but he's a candidate to make a big leap if he sticks around for his sophomore season. While Kentucky will undoubtedly retool with another stacked recruiting class, they'll lose Reid Travis to graduation, and potentially PJ Washington to the NBA. The opportunity will at least be there for Montgomery to make a major leap. Even at his current stage of development, he'd likely be a starter for just about any other program in the country.
