Three-star OL makes switch to Temple

6/19/2012

Matt Barone (McKees Rocks, Pa./Montour), a three-star offensive guard, decommitted from UConn in favor of Temple, multiple sources report.

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Barone originally selected the Huskies in March. His high school teammate and close friend, two-star defensive tackle Tyler Haddock, also recently picked the Owls.

“He’s my best friend and it is a dream come true to have the opportunity to make a college legacy with him,” Barone, who also holds offers from Akron, Ohio and Old Dominion, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Owls have four players on board for 2013.
