Montiel told NBC5 that when it came down to the decision, OSU was the perfect fit for him and his future.
“I wanted to bet on myself, play at the highest level I could and not sell myself short,” Montiel said. “OSU has that family feel that I really like.”
Montiel intends to study Business Administration throughout his time at OSU, as well as red-shirt his freshman year.
