Nick ‘Son of Joe’ Montana signs with Tulane

Following up on reports that first surfaced last month, Nick Montana has officially landed at his new collegiate football home.

Tulane announced Friday that the son of NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana has signed his National Letter of Intent with the Green Wave and will begin competing with the football program during spring practice.  The quarterback will have two years of eligibility.

“We are very excited about the addition of Nick to our program,” Tulane head football coach Curtis Johnson said. “He was very high on our list for this year’s class. Nick is a highly intelligent player who has a very accurate arm and has incredible leadership skills, and he is a proven winner. We will have a young group of quarterbacks next season so we made it a priority to bring in an experienced player at that position. We believe Nick will have an immediate impact on our program.”

Montana spent this past season at Mount San Antonio College after transferring to the JUCO ranks from Washington in January of 2012.  As a three-star member of the Huskies’ 2010 recruiting class, Montana was rated by Rivals.com as the No. 22 pro-style quarterback in the country.

After redshirting as a true freshman, Montana completed 24 of 42 of his passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns in 2011.  He started one game that season in place of an injured Keith Price.

    He’ll probably transfer six more times before it’s all said and done.

    It appears that the apple did fall far from the tree on both the Montana boys. They were both in big football programs that have tons of notoriety and neither could cut it. Now it looks like they both landed some place where the name alone gets them coddled like babies. I’m sure it’s tough having to live up to the name but if they don’t succeed, which I’m assuming will be the case, then all this was a big waste. Maybe they should’ve been architects!

    His dad was the greatest qb who ever lived. That’s hard to live up to. I would like to see him succeed because it would be a great story and fun to watch.

    Great to have him. Hopefully he can put people in the stands cause attendance is dismal at best

    I don’t know what Washington was thinking. Genetics and early environmental training from dad probably make nick a potentially amazing quarterback. And Washington let him play basically one game under Keith price? Obviously Washington didn’t succeed with that decision. Look at their record, regardless of a win over Stanford this year. Morons.

    Joe’s son and Chris Carter’s son should link up. They both seem to have a lot of trouble staying at one school.

    mhalt99 will be giving classes on the affects of drinking 3 week old bong water down at the local piggly wiggly for all those who are interested. Please feel free to stick around for his lecture on the use of poor grammar in today’s society. The sign up sheets on the board!

    I wouldn’t mind being called a loser with a degree from Tulane and father name Joe Montana…, please call me a loser!!

    Burgandy:

    The other, Nate, was never highly recruited in HS. Hell, he didn’t even start at QB as a senior in HS. He was not offered a scholarship at ND but welcomed to walk on by former HC Charlie Weis who is buds w/ Joe. I don’t think Kelly was as welcoming thus since he’s left ND his dad has rarely said anything positive about his alma mater. Nick was highly recruited….I believe he was a 4-star. I’m guessing he was never interested in ND b/c he wanted to avoid the unfair comparisons he would have heard. Hope he pans out at Tulane. Weren’t they an original member of the SEC?
