The Temple Owls added the first tight end to their 2013 class, A.J. Sattinger from Clearwater, Fla.

The Temple Owls have landed a tight end recruit in A.J. Sattinger from Clearwater, Fla., making him the 13th member of Temple's 2013 recruiting class and the first tight end.

Sattinger's commitment became public when his high school football team's Twitter feed updated with the news their 6'3, 225-pound tight end would be going to Temple. Sattinger was ranked as a two-star recruit by Rivals and a three-star recruit by Scout, and was confirmed as having offers from several FBS schools, including the Bowling Green Falcons, Ohio Bobcats, Western Michigan Broncos and UMass Minutemen, along with a variety of FCS schools. Sattinger also reportedly drew "heavy interest" from the Georgia Bulldogs, Florida St. Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes, Fla. International Golden Panthers, Duke Blue Devils and Vanderbilt Commodores, although none of those schools had yet offered him.

The top two tight ends on Temple's depth chart, Cody Booth and Alex Jackson, are both juniors and will graduate next season, potentially leaving a spot open for Sattinger right away if he is redshirted as a true freshman.
