Three-star running back Montrell Dobbs (Ansonia, Conn./Milford Academy) had to endure a few twists and turns during the recruiting process, but has found a home at Temple.

Dobbs originally committed to Connecticut, but had to find another option when he was told he couldn't enroll because of an academic issue. He was planning to attend Marshall until he met with Temple head coach Steve Addazio -- a Connecticut native who attended Central Connecticut State -- and assistant coach Sean McGowan last Friday.

“They made an offer Tuesday,” Dobbs said. “I really didn't have to think about it much. I wanted to stay closer to home anyway. It was a good fit for me.”
