The fallout from the bombshell that the FBI dropped on college basketball is only just beginning.

It will be significant, however.

And on the recruiting front, it started on Wednesday. E.J. Montgomery, a five-star big man that was committed to Auburn in the Class of 2018, will be reopening his recruitment.

“We are going to open EJ’s recruitment back up,” his father told “He hasn’t really gone through the process of being recruited and he wants to experience that.”

Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person was arrested on Monday night after he was accused of receiving bribes from a runner for an agent and a financial advisor to steer Auburn center Austin Wiley to them. He was also accused of funneling money from that agent to the player and his family.
