Former Massachusetts guard Jesse Morgan is enrolled in summer courses at Temple and could possibly play for the Owls next season. This was first reported by OwlScoop.com.

The Olney High graduate, who has one season of eligibility remaining, is a continuing studies student at Temple.  He could play for the Owls in 2013-14 if he completes this summer's course work and clears the NCAA clearinghouse.

 The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder has been reportedly forced to withdraw from UMass due to violation of a school policy before the start of last season. After serving a one-game suspension, he averaged 13.4 points before suffering a season-ending ACL injury in January.
