Temple redshirt sophomore WR Robbie Anderson is no longer enrolled at Temple.

The Owls' top receiver in 2013 finished with 44 catches for 791 yards and nine touchdowns despite missing the first two games of the season. Anderson left the program briefly last offseason but ended up returning as a walk-on without a scholarship. The 6-foot-3 receiver reportedly terminated his enrollment because of academic problems. Because Anderson has been out of high school for three years, and he isn't currently progressing towards graduation, it's fair to speculate that Anderson might jump to the NFL instead of transferring. If so, he'd face an uphill climb for a roster spot.

Maryland senior graduate Pete White has transferred to Temple.

He will be eligible to play in 2013, which is White's final season of eligibility. "He’s a big, strong, athletic kid," Temple head coach Matt Rhule said. "We always believe the battles are won in the trenches." White left the Terps' football program earlier this year after citing personal reasons. He started seven of the 20 games played.

Former Penn State QB, turned Temple H-back, Kevin Newsome will likely move to RB for the 23013 season.

"I think we are going to try to play Kevin more as a running back, more of a tailback type of body if he can do it," Temple coach Matt Rhule said. "That [H-back] position is such a hybrid position. So you can tailor it one way or the other. … But I think Kevin is going to be more of a tailback." Newsome missed part of spring work due to a shoulder injury and was passed on the depth chart by Chris Coyer.

Temple senior RB Montel Harris has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Harris has compiled an ultra-productive collegiate career, starting with Boston College and finishing up at Temple. Injuries will be a big concern during the evaluation process, but Harris offers a straight-line, decisive running style.

Temple senior RB Montel Harris rushed for 106 yards on 21 carries Friday against Syracuse.

Harris has put together a string of two solid performances. After last weekend's 351 yard game against Army, Harris showed more straight-line determination. Along with some off field questions, teams will have to put Harris through an extensive medical check, but he is a between the tackles runner with limited moves.

Temple senior RB Montel Harris rushed for 351 yards and seven touchdowns on 36 carries Saturday against Army.

Harris was a very productive player at Boston College, but multiple injuries and disagreements with the coaching staff led him to Temple this season. The transfer senior may not pass his medicals during the pre-draft process, but he offers some consistent straight forward ability.

Temple senior RB Montel Harris is day-to-day with a hamstring injury and his status is known for Saturday's game against Maryland.

Harris only rushed for 12 yards on five carries in his opener against Villanova. Before Temple, Harris played at Boston College and would have been the conference's all-time leading rusher with one more average season, but a recurring knee injury and a dismissal from the program changed his plans. Despite his numbers, Harris is not a viable prospect.

Boston College RB transfer Montel Harris only mustered 15 yards on six carries in his debut with the Owls.

Harris was kicked off the Boston College team for violating team rules multiple times. He only played two games last season due to a recurring knee injury. Harris is the Eagles' all-time leading rusher with 3,735 yards, including a career-high 1,457 in 2009 and would have broken the all time ACC record with one more solid season.

Temple junior WR Deon Miller may miss the Owls' opener due to a viral illness.

Miller has been sidelined with the illness since the second week of training camp. The junior started 12 games last season and recorded 18 receptions for 253 yards and three touchdowns. "I’m feeling good, right now," Miller said. "I’m getting in the groove of things. I’m working out, right now. So I feel good." After losing the majority of their offense in running back Bernard Pierce and receiver Rod Streater, Miller is expected to be the Owls' top target.

Temple dismissed junior T Darryl Pringle for undisclosed reasons.

Pringle was not slated to start but this certainly could limit the Owls' depth along the offensive line. Redshirt freshman Zach Hooks won the starting left tackle job over Pringle and sophomores Adam Metz and Joe Cenatiempo could be seeing more playing time with the junior's departure.

After being dismissed from Boston College for multiple violations of team rules, senior RB Montel Harris will transfer to Temple and play for the Owls in 2012.

Harris is Boston College's career rushing leader despite playing in only two games last year due to a recurring knee injury. He applied for and received a medical redshirt, which he will use after enrolling at Temple on Sunday. Harris certainly has a large sample size, but his pro prospects look bleak since his body is already showing signs of wearing down after accumulating 786 college carries.

According to WPVI-TV in Philadelphia, Temple linebacker Praise Martin-Oguike was suspended indefinitely by the team after his arrest following an alleged incident that took place over Memorial Day weekend.

The sophomore LB was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, forcible rape, sexual assault, unlawful restraint and false imprisonment, stemming from an incident that took place May 26 in a university dorm room. He played in just seven games as a true freshman last season.

Boston College running back Montel Harris was kicked off the team due to multiple violations of team rules.

The most unfortunate part of this development is that Harris has battled through multiple knee injuries the past couple of years. Although he was shut down for the spring after re-injuring his left knee, he was hopeful of returning in the fall for his final season. Harris is the Eagles' all-time leading rusher with 3,735 yards, including a career-high 1,457 in 2009.

From an uncertain future to being the No. 1 running back, a year has made a huge difference for Matt Brown.

Has it ever. Brown got into then-new coach Steve Addazio’s dog house last spring when he was suspended and left to ponder his fate. Brown turned the tables, returned to the team and enjoyed a junior season in which he was 30th nationally in all-purpose yards with an average of 139 per game. The 5-foot-5 Brown ran for 916 yards (5.9 ypc) while teaming with Bernard Pierce to give the Owls a formidable one-two punch in the backfield. With Pierce having declared for the NFL draft after his junior season, Brown is the lead back on a team that is now a Big East member.
