Winter Park (Fla.) wide receiver D'Vario Montgomery is now at the stage of his recruitment where he will have to take his extensive list of offers and narrow it down to a select few. He isn't quite ready to name a leader, but says that may never come as he may just outright commit when he finds the right place.
"I don't have a leader right now," Montgomery said. "I just want to start taking my visits and basically whenever I feel like I have found that school that is the one for me, then I will go ahead and decide."
The visits that the 6-foot-3, 205-pound wideout is talking about now taking is his officials. He recently took some unofficial visits, including one that took him to Knoxville, Tennessee to check out the Volunteers. He talked about his time around Derek Dooley's program.
"Tennessee has a lot of facilities and they have great, new equipment," Montgomery said. "They have a lot of chemistry there. They are a team that is really building. They have put a lot of people into the (National Football) League. Basically all-around they are a great school. It is definitely a football town because there isn't much going on there other than football."
More recently Montgomery took a trip across I-4 to check out Skip Holtz' Bulls.
"I visited USF for a practice, I want to say it was last Saturday," Montgomery said. "It was a real good visit. They just talk to me about how I can fit into their offense. They talk about how I can play early there. They also talk about how they are becoming a better team. They talk about how I can help them get even better."
According to the Central Florida prospect, the University of South Florida has made it abundantly clear to him just how important he is to them as a recruit.
"They basically tell me how important I am to them every time I talk with them," Montgomery said. "Every time I come through there they really make me feel wanted. They always given me an open-armed welcome. It makes me feel comfortable there."
Next up for the four-star Rivals250 prospect is scheduling official visits. He shed some light on possible destinations.
"I haven't made any official visit plans yet," Montgomery said. "I am working on that now. I am in the process of doing that right now. I am considering Alabama, Arkansas, probably Georgia, Tennessee, and I am not sure of the other one. Those are some of them right now."
While Central Florida and South Florida are both in-state contenders for Montgomery's services, they are unlikely to receive official visits.
"I probably won't use an official visit to a school in Florida," Montgomery said. "I feel that would be a waste of a visit."
As a junior, Montgomery recorded 45 receptions for 1,100 yards and 15 touchdowns.
