NEWPORT, R.I. -- Camden Catholic shooting guard Kyle Green gave an oral commitment Tuesday to play basketball at Temple.

The 6-foot-5 rising senior chose the Owls over scholarship offers from Albany, Quinnipiac, Florida Atlantic and Colgate.

Temple coach Fran Dunphy "was the first guy to recruit me," Green said of picking the Owls. "He offered me at the end of my sophomore year.

"Every school I went to, I always compared them back to Dunphy and Temple. And I just thought Temple was the best fit for me."

Green averaged 22 points in route to being a second-team all-South Jersey selection by The Inquirer last season. He garnered third-team honors as a sophomore.
