He want’s to play ball. He won’t beat out Keith Price. So he’s gone. Can ya blame him?
Nick Montana is leaving Washington for a junior college then to a 4 year to not miss a year of football action.
“I’ve got three years (of college eligibility) left and I want to spend those on the field,” he told the Seattle Times. “I don’t want to wait another year. You only get one shot at playing college football so I just kind of made the best decision for me and I’m going with it.”
Keith Price (3,063 yards and 33 TD’s) has been on the rise at Washington leaving Montana (225 yards and 3 TD’s) with no snap at QB.
Though when requesting the transfer coach Sarkisian seemed pretty neutral to the idea.
“I just told (Sarkisian) straight up,” he said. “He understood. He told me about how he transferred (from USC to El Camino and then to BYU) and how his career kind of went. So he was totally understanding and supported me in that and let me know if I need anything to just let me know. He was really supportive about the whole thing and that just made it that much easier for me. Obviously it’s not an easy decision, but having him handle it the way he did made it a lot better for me.”
Other recent transfers in the Pac 12 include:
Amir Carlisle (former USC tailback)
Brice Butler (former USC wide receiver)
Ryan Katz (former Oregon State QB)
