“We are thrilled to have D'Vario join the Iowa State football team,” said Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads. “He is a big-play receiver who will fit in tremendously with our needs at that position. He has the chance for a very successful career at Iowa State with his skill-set and size.”
A sophomore, Montgomery is 6-foot-5 and said the reason he was leaving South Florida was just that he didn't see himself as a good fit with the program after Skip Holtz was fired and replaced by Willlie Taggart.
I guess there just wasn't an open seat on the bus for Montgomery.
Iowa State was one of the schools Montgomery had originally been considering before deciding on South Florida, and he'll be reunited with his high school quarterback with the Cyclones. While Montgomery will have to sit out the 2013 season, Sam Richardson is expected to be Iowa State's starter this season.
Montgomery, who had six receptions for 65 yards last season, is the third receiver the Bulls have lost this offseason. Sterling Griffin followed Skip Holtz to Louisiana Tech while Terrence Mitchell was suspended following an arrest and will not play this fall.
