iR  
UPDATE:   

Mark Williams, a 3 star 6’8” PF from Montrose Christian (MD), committed to Temple on Monday night.

ANALYSIS:

Williams averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds during his senior season at Montrose. He also has a nice stroke from 3 point land as a big man.  Williams chose Temple over Indiana, Vanderbilt, and Kent State. “I was really looking for three factors: if I could fit in athletically, socially and academically,” Williams said Monday night. “After my visit and talked to some of the students besides the basketball players and talking to professors and just being around the whole campus, I really feel like I can be successful in my tenure there. Those things along with Coach Fran Dunphy coming down here three, four times and along with their success and the legacy of the program, that’s why I chose Temple.”, stated Williams. Williams becomes the third member of Temple’s 2013 recruiting class, joining signed players Josh Brown (St Anthony, NJ) and Kyle Green (Camden Catholic, NJ).
