Class of 2021 Florida athlete Charles Montgomery narrowed his list down to a top two Thursday, with the Florida Gators and Maryland Terrapins battling for his pledge.
Montgomery is ranked as the No. 235 prospect in the nation, the No. 32 player out of Florida and the No. 14 athlete, according to the 247Sports Composite.
This latest narrowing down comes after Montgomery released a top seven of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Nebraska, Penn State and South Carolina. He holds 24 total offers, according to 247Sports.
Montgomery made a visit to College Park in early March which helped the Terps make an impression before the top seven was released, and the relationship has seemingly progressed well in the two months since.
The plan, according to Montgomery’s tweet, is to announce his commitment to either Florida or Maryland on May 24.
