Temple was happy with the oral commitments it received at the conclusion of the Matt Rhule 2014 Football Camp last weekend.

Commitments from Israel Benson, a 6-1, 316-pound  offensive lineman from  St. Joseph’s (N.J.) Regional High School;  Jeremiah Atoki, a 6-1 ½, 190 pound wide receiver from Vineland (N.J.) High School; and Ryquel Armstead, a 5-10 ¾ receiver-defensive back from Millville (N.J.) brought the number of oral commitments to five for the class of 2015.
