PF recruit Montreal: USF at top of list
Daequon Montreal, the 6-foot-8 power forward from College of Southern Idaho who will make an official visit to USF next weekend, said Wednesday that USF is at the top of his list and the only school he has scheduled for an official visit.
"They've done a great job of recruiting me," Montreal said. "I feel like they really need me for next year."
Montreal, who is from Syracuse, N.Y., said that Boise State would be next on his list -- he's made an unofficial visit to their campus, with Fresno State and St. John's as schools he's still considering. He had talked with Arizona, but with their coaching situation, they're not a factor right now.
Montreal -- his first name is pronounced day-KWON -- averaged 15.9 points and a team-best 8.9 rebounds for CSI, and finished as the team's most accurate 3-point shooter, going 18-for-45, a 40 percent clip. He also finished second on the team in blocks, behind 7-foot freshman Aziz Ndiaye of Senegal. Assistant coach Reggie Hanson has been his primary recruiter for USF.
Montreal's official visit is immediately before the spring signing period starts on April 15, and USF is in strong contention for the other scheduled visit that weekend, Oak Hill (Va.) small forward Glenn Bryant.
