Luis Montero, a 6’7 guard from the Dominican Republic, is enrolled at South Plains College, which is one of the top JC’s in the country. He has been taking classes since January and will play next season as a 2016 JC sophomore.
Montero helped guide Westchester CC to an NJCAA D1 National Tournament appearance last season as a freshman. He returned to Westchester this year, but their season was canceled due to transcript issues for several of last season’s sophomores who transferred to D1 schools. Montero didn’t play in any games this season, which is why he will be able to play as a sophomore during the 2015-16 season. He averaged 15.6 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists last season.
Montero will be one of the top players in the 2016 JUCO class and is still committed to the University of South Florida.
