Temple head coach Rod Carey has tabbed former Georgia quarterback D’Wan Mathis as his new starting quarterback for Thursday’s opener against Rutgers in Piscataway. Temple quietly released their depth chart on Monday and Mathis was slotted ahead of true freshman Justin Lynch. 


Mathis spent 2019 and 2020 with the Georgia Bulldogs and transferred to Temple at the conclusion of the Georgia’s 2020 campaign.  The Oak Park, Michigan native started Georgia’s opener last season against rival Arkansas.  The former composite four-star recruit saw action in three games with Georgia and compiled a 12-for-30, one touchdown, three interceptions, stat line. 

Mathis originally committed to Ohio State during the 2019 recruiting but decommitted when it became apparent that Justin Fields was headed to Columbus.  The 6’5 pro style quarterback signed his letter of intent with Georgia and enrolled in the Spring of 2019 but didn’t play due to a medical issue.  He battled Stetson Bennett for the starting job before being beaten out.  Mathis entered the transfer portal in November 2020 and signed with Temple shortly there after.
