Former Maryland offensive lineman to join Temple

Posted: July 26, 2013

Maryland offensive lineman Pete White, who was once considered one of the nation's top high-school recruits, has transferred to Temple for his final season of eligibility.

The Maryland graduate is immediately eligible to play because he is enrolled in graduate courses not available at Maryland.

White spent three seasons at Maryland and was a key cog for the Terrapins in his freshman and sophomore seasons. He was hampered by injury last season and left the team in February for "personal reasons."

"Big Pete," as the 6-foot-4, 330-pounder is known, was listed by Scout.com as the nation's fifth-best offensive guard in 2009 coming out of St. John's High in Washington.

"He's a big, strong, athletic kid," coach Matt Rhule said. "We always believe the battles are won in the trenches."

Coach named. Temple on Wednesday hired Rich Levy, who spent the last three years at Mississippi, as an assistant strength and conditioning coach. He will work with the men's and women's basketball teams.

Facility opened. Temple has officially opened the Pavilion Athletic Facility, an indoor practice venue for the Owls' field hockey, soccer, baseball, softball, and women's lacrosse teams. The 32,000-square-foot structure is at Broad and Montgomery Streets.
