St. Augustine outfielder Jardy Montgomery commits to Northwestern State
St. Augustine junior outfielder Jardy Montgomery has committed to Northwestern State.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Montgomery is a switch-hitter who runs very well, having been timed in 6.7 or even better in the 60-yard dash. Montgomery also has an above average arm.
Montgomery had his junior season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“He is athletic hitter,” St. Augustine coach Barret Rey said. “He runs very well and is one of the hardest workers you will find. He will figure things out and hit on that level. He has a chance to go even further after college with his ability. His ceiling is very high. He has gotten bigger, stronger and faster every year and has been able to barrel balls up.”
Rey is most pleased that Montgomery is not done with the Purple Knights.
“I am really happy that Jardy has another year to improve and show what he is capable of after what has happened in 2020,” Rey said. “We feel he will get even better in 2021.”
