Big game brings big names

Following Temple's massive win over Penn State on September 5, Matt Rhule's coaching staff received a commitment from 3-star safety Keyvone Bruton, who chose Temple over offers from schools like Duke and Virginia Tech.
Rhule and his staff are hoping for similar results on Saturday when the No. 21 Owls host No. 9 Notre Dame at Lincoln Financial Field. In addition to the 69,000 in attendance, more than 100 recruits will be on the sidelines. The list of recruits includes prospects that are committed to ACC, Big 10, SEC, Pac 12, MAC and Conference USA programs. For example, Michigan commits Brad Hawkins Jr and Ron Johnson will be in attendance while players like Rutgers commits Anthony Russo and Tymir Oliver will also make the trip.
Uncommitted prospects of note include 4-star offensive lineman JohnCarlo Valentin, 4-star wide receiver Mark Webb, 4-star running back D'Andre Swift and 4-star linebacker Nathan Proctor.
Every current Temple commit except for California quarterback Montel Aaron is also expected to be in attendance.
