Florida tight end commits to Temple

A.J. Sattinger, a senior at Countryside High School in Clearwater, Fla., gave an oral commitment Tuesday to play football at Temple.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound tight end is the Owls’ 13th commitment for the Class of 2013.

Sattinger chose Temple over scholarship offers from Ohio, Bowling Green, Western Michigan, Jacksonville State, Coastal Carolina, Gardner-Webb and Georgia State. He also received interest from Florida State, Vanderbilt, Duke, Florida International and Georgia.

Sattinger is known as a punishing blocker in the Cougars’ run-oriented offense. He finished last season with 12 receptions for 156 yards and a touchdown.

Sattinger is regarded as a three-star college prospect by Scout.com recruiting service. Rivals.com lists him as a two-star prospect. He is expected to play h-back at Temple.
