It’s been a busy week on the FBS transfer front for the UTEP football program.
As we noted earlier today, former Michigan and Akron offensive lineman Logan Tuley-Tillman has been added to the Miners roster. On top of that, the program has also confirmed that defensive back Jesse Montgomery has been added as well.
Like Tuley-Tillman, Montgomery will be eligible to play immediately in 2017. This will be his final season of eligibility.
Montgomery was originally a member of SMU’s 2013 recruiting class. He took a redshirt his true freshman season.
In 2014 and 2015, Montgomery played in 19 games for the Mustangs. He started five of those contests, two in 2014 and three in 2015.
