Nov. 25, 2013
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – University of Memphis head baseball coach Daron Schoenrock announced Monday that Collierville High School shortstop Brandon Montgomery signed a National Letter of Intent to join the program for the 2015 season.
Montgomery has lettered three seasons at CHS for former Tiger player and coach Jeff Hopkins, helping the squad to a 34-12 record and a Tennessee Class AAA state title last season with a 6-2 win over Farragut. While playing for the Dragons, Montgomery has recorded a .434 batting average, which ranks seventh all-time at Collierville.
“Brandon is a tremendous athlete that possesses ‘middle of the field’ skills as an infield defender and with table-setter/base stealer tools offensively,” Schoenrock said. “He can change games quickly with his speed and competitiveness, and is a great addition to our 2015 roster. We are thrilled that he has chosen Memphis!”
In 2012, Montgomery set the single-season stolen base and hits records at Collierville. At the plate, he totaled 62 hits with 143 at bats. That season he was named Varsity Rookie of the Year and was selected to the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Super Sophomore Team.
In June, Montgomery played for Team Tennessee at the Junior Sunbelt Classic in Oklahoma along with fellow Memphis signee Connor Alexander.
He is the son of Steve and Felicia Montgomery.
