Temple recruiting update: Owls remain in running for Georgia Tech transfer

As of late Monday night Temple hadn't added any commitments, and it's possible that the Owls may go past the Feb. 1 letter of intent date when signing a player or two.

A source said offensive tackle Trey Klock, a graduate transfer from Georgia Tech, will visit Temple, possibly this weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 285-ound Klock, who is from Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, started four games this past season for the 9-4 Yellowjackets and has two years of eligibility.

The Owls remain in the running for L.J. Cummings, a linebacker from Bartow, Florida, who has visited the campus.

One Owls source says that receiver Raheem Blackshear isn't out of the picture. Blackshear de-committed from Temple for Michigan State but then de-committed. Rutgers and another unknown school could also be in the picture a source says.

According to the source, Temple hasn't been rule out for Garrick Vollmer, a defensive lineman from Germany, who attended the Taft School in Connecticut. Vollmer, who de-committed from Louisville, has visited Virginia.

As we reported earlier, former walk-on placekicker Aaron Boumerhi has been placed on scholarship and will be part of the class of '17.

In addition, offensive lineman Vince Picozzi, a walk-on this past season from Lansdale Catholic, has recently been placed on scholarship and will also count toward this recruiting class.
