Among the problems ailing this year’s Maryland football team has been a lack of playmaking at the wide receiver position. The Terps staff has been spanning the country in search of potential impact receivers, including one highly touted Floridian who recently visited College Park and is planning a return trip.

D’vario Montgomery, a 6-3, 210-pound senior from Winter Park, Fla., visited Maryland a couple of weeks ago and is seriously considering the Terps.

“It was good. The only thing that I didn’t like was the weather. I like coach [Randy] Edsall, Coach Ryan [Steinberg] and coach [Andre] Powell. They all treated me like family,” he said. “It all was good.”

Montgomery, a four-star prospect rated a 90 and the No. 40 wideout in the country, claims an impressive offer list that includes Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida and Miami. But it’s another trip currently leading the pack.

“Maryland is in my top three with South Florida and Louisville,” said Montgomery, a Louisiana native and dynamic big receiver.

Montgomery, who posted 45 catches for 1,100 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior, has unofficially visited South Florida and may take a trip to Louisville sometime soon. Next month, he’ll be back in town.

“With Maryland, I’ll be visiting again in late December,” he said. “Everything was good there, the environment, the coaches and everything. I think I’d have a chance [to play early]. Like I said, the only bad thing was the weather.”
