The youngest of three brothers who all play football, 2019 Mater Academy ATH Montavious Brini (6-0, 200-pounds) has been raised with family in mind. The oldest Brini, Dontavious, signed with Concord University in 2015. Montavious now wants to make the most out of the potential opportunity to play with his brother Latavious (2017) at the next level.
“We definitely want to go to school together. Basically everything we do, we do it for each other and our family. We keep each other going,” said Montavious.
Mater Academy played Columbus last week in their spring scrimmage and lost 28-14 to the Explorers. Latavious, who is one of Miami’s most sought-after targets at
cornerback for the 2017 class, sat out with a sports hernia injury. Montavious spoke about his team’s performance.
“We have a lot to work on, on both sides of the ball. We need to finish games better,” he said. We have some studs and we are excited to get the season started. Our team is really young and we are really excited to grow up together and learn from each other and maybe even go to college together.
Listed as an athlete, Montavious says that he prefers to play running back, which is the position he will play this upcoming season. Brini categorizes himself as a “power” back and has been offered by USC, Temple, Tulane, Louisville, Syracuse, and Mississippi State. Despite the attention from out-of-state schools, Brini explained that his heart is in Miami.
“That’s my dream offer right there,” Brini said. “That’s where all the greats came from. Miami is the place to be.”
Brini’s cousin, James King, is a sophomore linebacker at Miami. He said that not only does his mother want him to stay home, but King has rave reviews on the new regime
“He said he loves the coaching staff. I like the them a lot personally,” Brini said. “I’ve been to practice and I love the tempo of everything. Mark Richt is turning it back around.”
As for any insight into his brother’s current recruitment, the youngest Brini was tight-lipped.
“He’s really open-minded right now so anything can happen.”
