Eric Montanez, a 6'4" wing, from Chester, Pennsylvania, has signed his Letter of Intent with the Knights. After graduating from Saint Thomas More in 2017 Eric played at Mercyhurst University – PA last season where he averaged 11.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per games.
Head Coach Alex Tyrrell can't be more thrilled that Eric has chosen to be a Knight.
"Eric comes highly recommended as a player, but more importantly as a young man", said Coach Tyrrell. "When he and his mom visited everything I had heard was spot on. Polite, humble, hardworking, and talented, are all great ways to describe Eric. These traits will allow Eric to not only make an impact on the court, but off it as well".
Eric will be studying Business Management and Technology at Vermont Tech.
Eric felt Vermont Tech was the right fit for him after his visit.
"I instantly felt a connection with Vermont Tech and Coach Tyrrell the moment I stepped on campus", said Montanez. "I feel he will better me not only as a player but also as a man".
The Knights are coming off a 20-13 season, which saw them return to the National Tournament for the first time in 5 years. For more information about the program please contact Coach Tyrrell at email@example.com
