One-time Ohio State quarterback commit D'Wan Mathis has been named QB1 at his next stop as he was named the starting quarterback at Temple on Tuesday.

Mathis was a longtime Buckeye commit, but flipped to Georgia on signing day after Justin Fields' transfer to Ohio State made the Bulldogs' quarterback depth chart favorable to an incoming player.

After battling a life-threatening brain cyst his first year on campus, Mathis emerged as Georgia's top quarterback entering last season and was named the starting quarterback for the team's season-opener against Arkansas, but was replaced at half by Stetson Bennett IV after going just 8-for-17 for 55 yards and an interception. Mathis attempted a pass in just one other game last season, going 4-for-13 for 34 yards and a touchdown in a loss to Florida.

Mathis now has four seasons of eligibility remaining at Temple after the NCAA granted every player an additional year of eligibility.
