Temple gets commitment from Montour offensive lineman

Posted: June 20, 2012

MONTOUR HIGH offensive lineman Matt Barone decommitted from Connecticut on Monday night and is now on board with Temple.

The 6-3, 285-pound Barone became the fourth player in the class of 2013 to orally commit to the Owls.

The rising senior follows in the footsteps of Montour teammate Tyler Haddock. Haddock, a defensive tackle at the Western Pennsylvania school, gave an oral commitment to Temple last week after decommitting from Kent State.

Haddock couldn't contain his excitement Tuesday morning.

"He's my best friend and it is a dream come true to have the opportunity to make a college legacy with him," Haddock said of playing at Temple with Barone.

The duo joins Mainland kicker Jim Cooper Jr. and Moorestown offensive lineman Shane Rafter as Temple's current recruits. n
