With transfer portal season officially upon us, college football fans are beginning to witness big names from their favorite teams announce their decision to enter the portal.
Cincinnati running back Myles Montgomery released a statement on Monday morning that outlined his plans to enter the portal, thanking Bearcats fans in the process for their support throughout his career with the team.
Montgomery was a feature piece in Scott Satterfield’s offense as he finished off the 2023 season with 66 carries for 438 yards and three touchdowns. The Florida native operated behind Corey Kiner for the majority of the season but showed flashes when available averaging an impressive 6.5 yards per carry.
The former three-star prospect reflected on his time at Cincinnati saying, “Looking back on the past three years here in Cincinnati, I have learned and seen a lot on and off the playing field. I have formed some of the best and unbreakable bonds with my brothers and wouldn’t trade it for the world. To one of the greatest fan bases in college football, thank you for your endless support and unconditional love for Bearcat football. I will forever bleed red and black.”
Cincinnati will now have a new spot to fill ahead of the 2024 season, but with this offseason shaping up to include one of the busiest portal cycles in college football history, Satterfield should have some options available.
