Ty Anthony Montgomery II, known more simply as Ty Montgomery, was born in Jackson, Mississippi on January 22, 1993. A wide receiver for the Stanford Cardinal, he is also a return specialist and was a consensus All-American for the 2013 season.
As a youngster, Montgomery moved to Dallas, Texas and he eventually attended St. Mark's School of Texas, located within the city. As a senior, he managed ten touchdown receptions and throughout his varsity career he managed 118 receptions for 36 touchdowns. Considered a four-star recruit by analysts and widely rated as one of the top 30 wide receiver prospects of his class, he committed to attending Stanford University.
Montgomery was able to see action as a true freshman in 2011, contributing as a wide receiver and as the team's primary kickoff returner. Altogether, he appeared in 13 games, starting the final four of the season, and registered 24 receptions for 350 yards and two touchdowns. In addition, he finished with a 25.2 yard kickoff return average and was honored with the Menlo-Atherton Trophy, awarded to the school's most outstanding freshman player.
As a sophomore, Montgomery's season was hindered by injury, but he still managed to appear in 11 games, starting four. He ended the year with 26 receptions for 213 yards and increased his kickoff return yard average to 26.6. Although not able to push on significantly from his freshman year, he was an All-Pac-12 honorable mention at the season's conclusion.
Then, in his 2013 junior year, Montgomery enjoyed an excellent season, in which he recorded two kickoff returns for touchdowns and averaged 30.3 kickoff return yards per game; the second highest tally in the nation. His total of 1,091 kickoff return yards made him only the second player in the school's history to eclipse the 1,000 yards mark in a single season. Moreover, Montgomery was credited with 2,208 all-purpose yards, which ranks as the third highest total in the program's history. At the end of the season, he was a consensus All-American and first team All-Pac 12 selection as a kick returner, and was named to the All-Pac-12 second team as a wide receiver.
