Josh Fuga’s late May tweet spelled it all out. In addition to extending a thanks to everyone who coached him along the way, friends, teammates, and God, Fuga announced his commitment to Temple.

Wake Forest and Virginia stood out for Fuga (2019 DT 6-2 290). He held over a dozen college scholarship offers, including Marshall, Penn, Old Dominion, Hampton, Buffalo, Marshall, Navy and Towson.
Fuga explained to 247Sports that his offer to Wake Forest fell through when other defensive linemen committed before him. His visit and his comfort level with the coaching staff, including Defensive Line Coach Jim Panagos and Offensive Line Coach Chris Wiesehan made the difference.
Temple now has six commitments for their recruiting class of 2019. Fuga is the only Virginian in the bunch. The other five are from DC, Maryland and Delaware, with Safety M.J. Saline of Michigan being the only real outlier in Temple’s recruiting footprint.
