The 6-foot-2, 180-pound Paramus Catholic (N.J.) senior combo guard committed to Temple on Wednesday afternoon at a news conference at his school.
``The tradition they had with guards was important to me," Guzman said. "Even though they haven't all made the NBA, a lot of them are making money overseas."
But the Owls' track record with players at his position wasn't the lone selling point.
``Coach (John) Chaney is a heck of a coach," Guzman added. "He's a Hall of Famer and he's going to get the best out of me."
With Collins leaving, Guzman, who played for the Playaz Basketball Club in the spring and summer, should get an opportunity to step right in and make an impact.
``I'm going to come in and get a chance to contribute a lot," Guzman said. "They also play one of the toughest, if not the most difficult, schedule in the country."
