Bielema reaching out to top junior helps get a visit

Some might remember about a month and half that ESPN Jr. 300 cornerback Ken Montgomery commented on Bielema contacting him on Sept. 1, he first day coaches could DM 2018 prospects on social media.

I asked him earlier in the week how much an impact that on him visiting this weekend:

“That had a big…huge impact because head coaches usually don’t go out of their way to get a kid if they’re not serious about it. That hyped me up.”

He and his parents arrive in Fayetteville Thursday at 8:30 am. They’ll leave Sunday.
