ESPN No. 31 ranked high school senior EJ Montgomery, who decommitted from Auburn in September, said the field is now wide open for his potential college destination.


“I’m completely open,” Montgomery told Scout of his recruiting options. “I’m going to wait until the last signing period and just take my time. I’m just open to everybody.”


According to his father E.J. Montgomery Sr., his son has received interest from Baylor, Clemson, Wake Forest, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Arkansas, NC State, North Carolina, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, UConn, Georgia, Wichita State, Butler, Texas A&M and Memphis.


The 6-10 forward out of Montverde Academy (FL) was one of the top rebounders on the adidas Gauntlet circuit this year, grabbing 9.3 boards per game for the Atlanta Celtics.


Montgomery also had a strong showing at the 2016 adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas when he averaged 9.8 points and 7.3 rebounds.


This season he has gotten off to a strong start with a 35-point explosion in a victory over Buford HS (GA) over the Thanksgiving holiday.


“I have something to prove,” said Montgomery. “I’m coming out here with the mindset to kill everybody and just try and compete the whole game.”


Scout’s Brian Snow loves Montgomery’s game.


“EJ brings a strong combination of size, skill and athleticism to Auburn,” said Snow. “He is one of the most naturally gifted players in this class and his upside is huge.”
