USC offers Ohio's top 2023 recruit Luke Montgomery

USC had offered one of the top players in the 2023 recruiting class in Findlay (Ohio) four-star lineman Luke Montgomery

The On3 Consensus – a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies – has Montgomery as the No. 59 overall player in the country. He is also the top player from the state of Ohio.

He is also the fourth-highest rated interior offensive lineman recruit in the class behind just Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy five-star prospect Francis Mauigoa, Ashburn (Va.) Broad Run four-star prospect Alex Birchmeier and Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep four-star prospect Chase Bisontis.

Montgomery had previously released a top six of Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Penn State in November.

Since that time, Lincoln Riley left the Sooners for the Trojans.

“Went to visit this past summer and it was amazing,” Luke Montgomery said of Oklahoma at the time. “Coach (Lincoln) Riley has done an amazing job and the campus there is also amazing.”

USC has the second-best recruiting class in the 2023 On3 Consensus Team Recruiting Ranking. The Trojans have two five-star commits in Los Alamitos (Calif.) Five-Star Plus+ quarterback Malachi Nelson and Las Vegas Bishop Gorman five-star wide receiver Zachariah Branch.
