Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a sophomore. Senior totals included 59/974/4 after 51/655/9 as a junior. Posted career numbers of 65/891/13 team as a sophomore. Led UTEP in receiving every year since his sophomore campaign.
Positives: Average-sized pass catcher with reliable hands. Plays with balance, consistently finds the open space on the field, and finds a way to get separation from opponents. Easily adjusts to the errant throw, reaching backwards to grab the ball from the air, and looks the pass into his hands. Effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders.
Negatives: One speed receiver who cannot run to the deep throw. Will lose focus on occasion.
Analysis: Monturi has been a very productive college receiver yet he lacks the measurables for the next level. Could be a fifth wide out for a timing offense that asks him to primarily run underneath routes.
