Montgomery narrowing the field

Greenwood High defensive end Sam Montgomery, The Observer's No.2 prospect in the state of South Carolina, has trimmed his list as Wednesday's National Signing Day approaches, according to two sources.

He has narrowed the schools he's considering to North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and LSU. No longer in the picture are Clemson and Michigan.

"He's nervous about all this," said longtime Greenwood coach Shell Dula, who retired following the season. "But I expect him to sign with somebody tomorrow."

Montgomery, who is 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, has 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash. A Shrine Bowl selection, he also made the AP all-state team. As a senior, he collected 78 tackles, including 11 sacks. He also forced three fumbles and had seven quarterback hurries.--Stan Olson
