The 6-foot-5, 314-pound Montelus is ranked by ESPN as the best player in Massachusetts.
Montelus projects as a strong offensive lineman with solid upper body strength, quick feet and long arms. Montelus likely has the requisite size to stick at his high school position of offensive tackle, but he could also play guard given his mobility.
Montelus has the explosiveness to get downfield and punish linebackers and defensive backs with his powerful run blocking. The lineman also has the lateral agility to hang tough in pass protection as the pocket moves.
Montelus committed to Notre Dame on April 21 and later, during his senior season, led his squad to its third consecutive Division 1A state championship with a 20-19 victory at Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots.
