Kyran Montgomery was waiting, wondering when a school would recognize his talent. His patience paid off last weekend during his junior day visit to Iowa. The Hawkeyes presented the Indianapolis Pike High sophomore with his first scholarship offer.

The opportunity could have rung hollow if it came from a program he didn’t respect. That wasn’t the case here.

“As I visited the campus, I noticed that all the coaches had great interest and pride about their campus, and the players, they live as a family,” Montgomery told HN. “I liked the facilities and their academic program is terrific.”

“Iowa is a great school and great campus. I loved every aspect of it, and I want to get to know more about the place,” he said. “It would be a great place for me to grow and develop.

As a sophomore, he totaled 51 tackles, three of which went for loss. He added a sack and a half, and broke up three passes.
