    E.J. Montgomery, the 6-foot-10 power forward from Wheeler (GA) High School, will have home visits with Kentucky and North Carolina during the upcoming recruiting period April 5-18, his father Efram told ZAGSBLOG.

    “We are on spring break this week but when we get back, UNC and Kentucky are planning a visit,” he said.

    Montgomery took an unofficial visit to Duke Feb. 14. He has also taken unofficial visits to North Carolina (Feb. 14) and Kentucky (Feb. 24).

    He is also considering Georgia, Georgetown, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest, he told FloHoops.com last week at the McDonald’s Game.

    Players from Duke and Kentucky were both recruiting him there.

    According to 247Sports, Montgomery is ranked as the No. 12 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 1 player from the state of Georgia. He de-committed from Auburn in September, following an FBI probe into separate incidents involving Auburn assistant Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person who was suspended without pay shortly afterward.
