Montgomery enjoys his weekend visiting the Florida Gators

Over the weekend, the Florida Gators had several quarterbacks on campus including one of their top targets in the 2025 class.

Quarterback Ryan Montgomery (6-3, 215, Findlay, OH. High) was on campus and enjoyed his time around everyone involved in the program.

“The visit was big time,” Montgomery said of his visit to Florida. “I got to see the coaches and players in action yet again in the scrimmage. The best part was getting to spend some time with the players. Spending time with the players and meeting with the team pastor were things we were looking to do that we haven’t done. We got everything we hoped for and more.”

Montgomery has been on campus a lot but getting to spend time with the Gators current quarterback was big to him during this visit.

“Graham Mertz went to dinner with us,” he said on hanging out with the players. “I was able to ask him questions and learn so much from him. He’s someone I will definitely stay in contact with as he will have a huge year and is super knowledgeable.”

Head coach Billy Napier has been very involved in Montgomery’s recruitment and had a message for the quarterback while he was on campus this past weekend.

“Coach Napier and Coach [Ryan] O’Hara were great,” Montgomery said on meeting with the coaches. “I feel I got all my questions answered that I will keep to my respectfully. We talked about quarterback development; the offensive system and how current and past quarterbacks have developed and ran the system. Just that gut feeling of how I see myself fitting there and the campus feeling.”

Next up for Montgomery will be visits to South Carolina and Georgia and then the Ohio native is hoping to commit.

“These three spring visits will be my last before my decision,” he said on what’s next in his recruitment. I’m hoping to decide in May and take one official to the school I’m committed to and visit another time to help recruit.”
