Temple's football program has received two verbal commitments from defensive backs for the 2012 recruiting class.

The Owls and first-year coach Steve Addazio have landed Brandon Shippen, a 5-10, 170-pounder from Norristown High School. They're also bringing in Daquan Stewart, a 5-10, 170-pounder from Mountain View High in Stafford, Va., who had generated some interest from Kentucky.
