 The University of Kentucky officially announced the addition of five star forward EJ Montgomery on Monday.

Montgomery committed to UK on April 9.

“I hope our fans understand just how good EJ is and how excited we are to have him,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “You’re talking about a skilled big man who can affect the game in a number of ways. EJ is the type of position less player the game is moving towards. He can play just about anywhere and make plays on the perimeter with his skills and versatility, yet he’s got the length and the ability to finish in the post as well as anyone in this class. What I love about him is he models his game after Anthony Davis, one of the best we’ve ever had, but wants to be his own player and carve out his legacy.”
The 6 foot 10, 200 pounder from Marietta, Georgia, is the Wildcats’ top rated commit in the 247Sports composite. He’s ranked as the No. 2 power forward behind Duke commit Zion Williamson. Montgomery is the No. 6 prospect in the 247Sports rankings and top ranked power forward.

“My goal for picking a school was to find a program that could push me as a player to reach my dream and as a person to grow; a school that made sure me and my family’s dreams became their dreams and that would push me to be my best. I’ve found that with Coach Cal and the University of Kentucky,” Montgomery said. “I’m proud to be a part of the Big Blue Nation where the standard is excellence Malik Monk Jersey, which is what my mother and father have instilled in me.”

Montgomery is considered as one of the best scoring big men in the 2018 class. He averaged 25.6 points for Wheeler High School this past season and grabbed 13.6 rebounds per game in addition to 4.3 assists. Montgomery was named as a McDonald’s All American and impressed in the game. He scored 12 points and secured five rebounds for the East team.

The Wildcats could have a loaded frontcourt in 2018 19. Sophomore center Nick Richards is returning to school and forwards PJ Washington, Jarred Vanderbilt and Wenyen Gabriel have declared for the NBA draft but not hired an agent. They have until May 30 to remain in the draft or return to school.
UK has the No. 2 ranked recruiting class in the 2018 class. Five stars Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson join Montgomery, along with four star guard Tyler Herro. It’s possible 2019 five star point guard Ashton Hagans reclassifies and joins the Wildcats for next season.
