    PROVEN SALES PITCH

    Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and defensive backs coach Kerry Coombs were in Tampa, Florida, this morning, at which time they offered a scholarship to Hillsborough four-star cornerback Ken Montgomery Jr.

    “It means I have the potential to play with some of the best defensive backs in the country,” Montgomery told Eleven Warriors.

    The 6-foot-2, 165-pound Montgomery is considered the 32nd-best corner and the No. 308 prospect overall in the Class of 2018. He holds more than two dozen offers from programs such as Arkansas, Louisville, Maryland, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee and USC, but said Ohio State stands out because of its ability to put defensive backs into the National Football League.

    A random Buckeye inclusion in a final list of schools

    In the world of recruiting, there are a few important rules to know. First, as stated earlier, is the “comfort and relationships” rule. There’s another one, according to my good friend Bill Greene of Scout.com, that is equally as relevant.

    The rule? There always has to be a second school.

    In the case of Ken Montgomery Jr., I don’t know who the first school is or even who the second is, but I am pretty confident in stating that Ohio State holds neither position. So, when the 3-star Tampa (Fla.) cornerback tweeted a final four — and a decision date — that includes the Buckeyes, you can feel confident that inclusion won’t yield an Ohio State commitment.

    UCLA and Penn State are the most likely outcomes right now. Montgomery will be in Happy Valley next week and is telling Land of 10’s Tyler Donohue he’ll make an official visit to Penn State as well.

    Bottom line, sometimes players add schools to their list because it looks good to have that school on your list. That’s especially true if you’re committing to a program in the same league as that team. If you’re Penn State and want to maintain momentum after the first season of relevance in what felt like a decade, any “win” feels good.
