Troy Temara, a 6’8″, athletic forward has signed his letter of intent to play at George Mason after verbally committing to the program back in September. Temara is probably the most athletic and physically gifted of the 2016 class and has plenty of highlight reels that include monster dunks. The interesting thing with him is if he can bring that outside jumper in the post, a staple in Dave Paulsen’s pick and pop offense that we didn’t see this season. With Shevon Thompson and Marko Gujanicic gone, the team is in desperate need for some athleticism and scoring up front. The question will be whether or not he can form a formidable pair in the front court with Jalen Jenkins.
Temara joins a Mason recruiting class that includes sharp-shooters Kamari Newman, Justin Kier and shooting guard Ian Boyd.
