Head coach Fran Dunphy of the Temple Owls announced today that three high school seniors have officially signed National Letters of Intent to play men’s basketball at Temple University.

The three recruits are 6-foot-6 guard/forward Quenton DeCosey of St. Joseph-Metuchen (NJ), 6-foot-7 forward Daniel Dingle of St. Raymond’s (NY), and 6-foot-10 center Devontae Watson of Lincoln Park (PA).

“We are excited to add these three young men to the Temple basketball program,” Dunphy said. “They are all fine upstanding citizens from wonderful families. We are looking forward to great things from them during their Temple careers.”

DeCosey averaged 23.4 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 3 steals, and 2.6 blocks as a junior last season at St. Joseph’s-Metuchen High. “I chose Temple University mainly because of the coaching staff and the atmosphere and the distance,” DeCosey told SNY.tv. “It’s only an hour-and-a-half away.” DeCosey was named the All-Area and all-league Player of the Year by the Newark Star Ledger, earning first-team All-County and second-team All State honors in 2011. 

Dingle averaged 17 points, 12 rebounds and five assists per game as a junior last season. He led the Ravens to the CHSAA Class AA intersectional semifinals last winter. Dingle is the younger brother of former UMass standout Dana Dingle, a 1000-point scorer for the Mintemen in the mid-90s. He earned First Team all-City honors for the prestigious St Raymond’s High School. Dingle chose Temple over Miami, Auburn and Seton Hall.

Watson averaged 16 points, 18 rebounds, and 12 blocks per game as a junior. He was named a two-time second-team All-State selection and helped Lincoln Park Charter School reach the PIAA Class A final. He is a two-time Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) first-team selection. Watson spent a summer of AAU with Lebron James.

Temple has two scholarships remaining.
