Oklahoma's last signee from Georgia was receiver Cameron Kenney in 2009, although he came to the Sooners via Garden City Community College in Kansas.
At 33 years old, Montgomery becomes Oklahoma's youngest assistant coach; his youth could become a strong recruiting asset for OU.
Bedenbaugh, meanwhile, has developed a reputation as one of the top recruiters nationally. Lots of that derives from the tenacity with which he attacks recruiting.
“You have to be relentless,” Bedenbaugh said last week. “You have to talk to them all the time. You have to make those kids understand how important they are and how much you want them here. And I think that's it.
“I'm gonna work hard at it, just like I am coaching. I don't think there's any magic.”
McCuistion said Bedenbaugh's impact on Oklahoma is already being felt in the 2014 class.
“These guys are incredibly active,” McCuistion said of Bedenbaugh and Montgomery. “I've had more to do in the last week of following Bedenbaugh than I had in months following (James) Patton and (Bruce) Kittle.”
