George Washington defensive end Justin Moody, who was selected to play in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, lists Temple among his top five possible college destinations.

"They're in my backyard," the Germantown resident told The Inquirer's Matt Breen about what attracts him to the Owls.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound senior also lists California, Pittsburgh, Purdue and Syracuse as his other finalists. Moody has not taken any official visits at this time. He also wants to take him time before selecting a school.

Moody, who finished with 12 sacks and five forced fumbles last season, will play in the All-American game on Jan. 4 in Carson, Calif.
