Penn State 2023 Commit London Montgomery Suffers Knee Injury; Likely out for Season

Penn State commit London Montgomery, a Class of 2023 four-star running back out of Scranton Prep in Scranton, Pennsylvania, suffered a serious knee injury and will likely miss his senior season.


Montgomery committed to Penn State July 11, choosing it over Boston College, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.

He is currently the No. 6 player in Pennsylvania and the No. 22 running back in the nation, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Montgomery suffered the injury Saturday in a preseason scrimmage, and test results Tuesday revealed Tuesday that he tore his ACL.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Montgomery had a monster junior season in 2021, rushing for 2,356 yards on 194 carries and 36 touchdowns playing in over ten games. 

Nittany Sports Now spoke to Mongomery after Penn State offered him offer in March and was excited about the opportunity to play at Penn State because of his grandma.

” My grandmother actually liked Penn State,” Montgomery told NSN, “so I was a big Penn State fan. I didn’t go to any games or anything, but I used to watch as a little kid. I always dreamed of getting an offer from Penn State, so it was definitely a blessing.”

Mongomery is the only running back so far committed to Penn State’s Class of 2023.
