Former West Virginia assistant Bill Bedenbaugh was hired last week to coach the offensive line; a significant reason for Bedenbaugh's hire was his recruiting acumen, and Montgomery appears to possess strong skills in that department as well.
Montgomery played a key role in Michigan's back-to-back top-10 recruiting classes, and he didn't just recruit defensive linemen.
In the Wolverines' No. 5-ranked 2013 class, Montgomery helped recruit five-star prospect Derrick Green, the Richmond, Va., product considered by Rivals to be the nation's top running back.
He also was involved in the recruitment of four-star outside linebacker Mike McCray (Trotwood, Ohio), and four-star defensive tackle Henry Poggi (Baltimore).
Montgomery has apparently hit the ground running as an Oklahoma recruiter; 2014 four-star defensive end Andrew Williams, from Eagle's Landing Christian in McDonough, Ga., tweeted that Montgomery called to say he'd joined the OU staff.
Williams already holds several impressive Division I scholarship offers, including Montgomery's former employer, Michigan, as well as Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Texas A&M.
