ASU hoping to sign another Montes
Recruiting the state of Texas has become a priority for first year head coach Hugh Freeze at Arkansas State University. With 14 commitments on the books already, three of those are from the Lone Star State. Another top Texas prospect that appears to be on Freeze and his coaching staff's radar is Colleyville Hertiage defensive end Rex Montes. Montes is a legacy recruit for Arkansas State, Rex's father Manny played for ASU in the 60's, he was in Jonesboro from 1965 to 1969. "I'm very familiar with Arkansas State because of my dad playing there back in the day," Montes told AStateNation.com. "I like the campus a lot, it's gotten a lot bigger since my dad's playing days." Montes is a 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end. He currently has offers from Arkansas State, Air Force and Navy. Montes and his father have been watching and keeping up with the Red Wolves every chance they get on television. "They are doing really well," Montes said. "They are one of the best teams in the Sun Belt." Montes plans on taking an official visit to Arkansas State in the near future, as he completes his senior season.
