EJ Montgomery Decommits From Auburn Amid NCAA Scandal

A five-star recruit is now open to other schools.

On Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced that 10 people have been arrested, including four coaches.

Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person was named in the FBI's corruption investigation. Shortly after the news broke, Auburn announced it had suspended Person without pay.

Today, four-star basketball recruit E.J. Montgomery's father told Scout that they will be re-opening EJ's recruitment.

From the report:

"We are going to open EJ's recruitment back up," Montgomery Sr., said. "He hasn't really gone through the process of being recruited and he wants to experience that."

This is the first fallout from the FBI's probe into college basketball and the corruption that has been thrust into headlines.

We may be just entering the fallout from this FBI probe, and many believe Louisville head coach Rick Pitino will be fired as early as today.
