Rob Rang of CBS Sports wrote that Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery "is a different caliber of athlete than we've seen at Stanford in recent seasons."
Montgomery ran up 2,208 all-purpose yards last season, the third most in school history. He's a superb receiver, but perhaps a better kick returner, averaging 30.3 yards per opportunity to earn consensus All-American honors as a kick returner in 2013. "He is well-built and fluid, changing directions well and boasting sudden acceleration to leave defenders in his wake," Rang wrote. "He is very aggressive, bursting upfield and fighting through arm- tackles to generate positive yardage rather than dancing to avoid contact. He's asked to run a variety of routes in this pro-style scheme but does most of his damage on quick screens and verticals and could stand to improve the consistency of his breaks." Montgomery led Stanford with 61 catches for 958 yards and 10 touchdowns. Jun 23 - 10:09 PM

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks says NFL scouts "salivate" over the potential of Stanford junior WR Ty Montgomery.

Scouts highly value dual-threat playmakers, Brooks writes, making Montgomery a hot property. "The senior standout is arguably the most explosive returner in college football, but is equally impressive as a pass-catcher," wrote the scribe. "Montgomery averaged 15.7 yards per catch in 2013 with 10 touchdown catches, while also ranking second in kickoff returns with a 30.3-yard average and two return scores. Those numbers are not only indicative of his overall explosiveness, but it speaks volumes about his playmaking ability in the open field. Thus, it is not surprising to hear scouts rave about his upside and potential as a future pro." The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is in line for a monster season, and it's scary to think what he could do if Kevin Hogan takes an expected step forward in 2014.

Stanford sophomore WR Ty Montgomery tied a Cardinal school record with five touchdowns in Saturday's 63-13 blowout of California.

If matching a record can somehow look easy, this is how it's done: Montgomery scored the first four times he touched the ball against the Bears. In the end, he had tied Darrin Nelson's record set at Oregon State in 1981. Montgomery had five receptions for 160 yards by halftime; he didn't catch a ball in the second half as coach David Shaw called off the dogs.

Oregon State defensive coordinator Mark Banker called Stanford sophomore WR Ty Montgomery "Brandin Cooks on steroids."

It is an interesting statement, since Cooks, a junior receiver on Oregon State, is one of the top prospects at his position. We take it as Banker believing Montgomery is the better player, but we aren't so sure that is the case. The Cardinal receiver has helped stretch the field and is a difference maker in the return game.
Tue, Oct 22, 2013 09:03:00 AM's Bucky Brooks writes that Stanford sophomore WR Ty Montgomery "is quietly becoming one of college football's most electrifying playmakers."

Montgomery struggled through an injury-plagued 2012 campaign, but he's making up for lost time this season. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder "has regained the speed, explosiveness and burst that made him an instant contributor as a freshman," according to Brooks. Montgomery has anchored Stanford's pass offense this season and is also averaging 34 yards per kick return. "With Stanford maintaining its standing as a viable BCS contender, Montgomery's offensive contributions will certainly raise his profile in the NFL scouting community," Brooks wrote.

Stanford's leading WR, sophomore Ty Montgomery, is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Notre Dame with an injured knee.

The injury is likely not as impactful as it sounds, since the Cardinal passing attack can be built on targeting two ultra-talented tight ends in Zach Ertz and Levine Toilolo. Those matchups will be what wins or loses the coverage battle for the Irish. Senior Jamal-Rashad Patterson will take Montgomery's starting spot out wide, however.

With Chris Owusu out, freshman Ty Montgomery will get the start at receiver against the Ducks.

Montgomery has played six games this season and caught five of his seven passes against USC two weeks ago. The freshman also performs on special teams and is averaging 29.2 yards (1 TD) on 15 kick returns.
