Montgomery says the atmosphere in the Swamp was “insane”

The Florida Gators’ offense moved the ball at will in the first half against Tennessee last Saturday in front of dozens of top targets from the offensive side of the ball in the Class of 2025.

2025 receiver Naeshaun Montgomery (6-0, 160, West Palm Beach, FL. Cardinal Newman) was on campus and enjoyed the Swamp and the atmosphere the fans created.

“The visit was amazing,” Montgomery said of his visit to Florida on Saturday. “The atmosphere was insane. The fans had that place rocking, I’m glad I got to witness that. It was definitely the best so far.”

After the game was over, Montgomery had the chance to talk with the Gators head coach who had a simple message to him about being a priority for the Gators.

“I got to talk to Coach [Billy] Napier after the game,” he said on his talks with the coaching staff. “He told me to keep doing what I’m doing and that I’m a major priority to the program for next year.”

Receivers coach Billy Gonzales also spoke with Montgomery while he was on campus and explained to him where he would play at on offense if he picked Florida for college.

“They tell me to remain humble,” Montgomery said on his talks with Gonzales and Decker. “To keep working and watch how everything comes together on their end. They tell me I’m a perfect fit for the program and that’s why they’re recruiting me so hard to play outside receiver.”

Montgomery admits that a lot of schools are recruiting him hard right now but he says he likes the Gators and how they use their playmakers.

“They’re definitely in my top ten, no specific order,” he said on where Florida stands with him and what he likes about them. “I liked how they used Tre [Wilson] this past weekend, put him in a bunch of different looks. Tennessee had no answer for him, and Florida knew that. He was hot and they kept feeding him.”
