Back in June, 6-foot-3 guard Josh Brown shied away from his verbal commitment to Temple.
Brown took the summer to focus on AAU and reassess his collegiate decision. Reports then broke late last week that Brown was ready to make another decision and choose between Rhode Island, Providence, Penn State and Owls.
Well, Brown’s decision is in, and on Monday he reaffirmed his commitment to Temple, jumping back on board with head coach Fran Dunphy.
Throughout the summer months, Brown took the time to visit each of the schools he considered while once again being out on the open market.
After visiting both Penn State and URI earlier this month, Providence got the last shot to swing Brown in their direction. The shooting guard visited the PC campus just last Friday, but it was Temple who ended up winning the race for his services.
By way of St. Anthony (N.J.), Brown is a very nice addition for the Owls (again).
A member of the class of 2013, Brown is an athletic left-hander who can be very explosive with the basketball on the offensive end. An all-around complete guard, Brown undoubtedly can have a very nice future in the Atlantic-10 Conference.
A proven guard who plays at one of the toughest and most talented high school programs in the country, Brown joins fellow New Jersey native Kyle Green in the Owls’ class of 2013.
Rivals lists Brown at No. 142 overall with the class. The guard ran with Sports U on the AAU circuit.
