Nick Montana won’t end up at Blinn College after all

Washington v USC Getty Images

When word broke that Washington quarterback Nick Montana would be transferring from the Huskies, he was immediately connected to Blinn College, former home of Cam Newton, in Texas.

That may not turn out to be the case.

ESPN’s Joe Schad reports that Montana will instead go to Mt. San Antonio College in California.

A redshirt freshman, Montana lost out to Keith Price in Washington’s spring practice last year. He completed 24 of 42 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns as a backup in 2011, appearing as a starter in a loss against Oregon State when Price went out the game before with a knee injury.

Montana’s brother, Nate, also found himself on the transfer list this past year as well, leaving Notre Dame for 1-AA Montana.

    Who cares!!! It appears that the little Montana boys will just continue to transfer until they find a place where daddy’s name can ensure they get a starting role at QB since they obviously don’t possess the talent to win the position on their own merit

    I don’t understand Nick’s thinking. I understand the desire the play, but Price will likely go Pro after the 2012 season. That would leave Montana two years to start at Washinton. Isn’t that better than a year at a JUCO or D2 school and transfers to another D1? After all, there’s no guaranteed he’ll win the starting job wherever he ends up. How did transferring workout for Mitch Mustain?

    That stat line doesn’t sound all that bad (24-42 3TDs) but if you watch the OSU game film you’ll see that the injured Price came off the bench (a little too late) and nearly won the game. UW was in desperate catch-up mode so Price was forced into slinging it all over the field and taking unnecessary risks. Still, Nick Montana has promise. He stands a solid chance of landing back in D-1 assuming he gets some playing time elsewhere, something he’d never get at UW. Keith Price will start the next 2 years and then it’ll be an epic battle between Lundquist and Miles. When those two guys committed (and hopefully they don’t flake on Feb.1st), that’s when Montana started hunting for a JC school. Smart move. Good luck, Nick. I wish you the best.

    The apples sure do fall far from the tree.

    It just goes to show that there is ‘nothing’ significant in a ‘name’ if there is no ‘substance to back it up. And playing musical chairs with all these college transfers are nothing more (these days) than’ little vacations’ to these boys…Just ask Tyler (Blaine’s brother) Gabbert. Don’t worry, boys, you’ll all be back home with your ‘mamas’ soon enough.
