Jim manages all freshman recruitment practices and freshman application review, including all recruited athletes, and assists with transfer recruitment as needed. Also, reach out to Jim if you have questions and are from Alaska or Hawaii.

Being a huge sports fan, Jim's favorite Temple moment was the Temple vs. Notre Dame football game at the Linc on Halloween 2016. It was a great atmosphere and a great game to watch on prime-time national television. Jim loves Philadelphia for college students because it has everything a college student could want: culture, food, concerts, professional sports teams and great rivalries! When not recruiting students, you can find Jim ordering the #10 from Richie's for lunch and people-watching in the newly revamped O'Connor Plaza.
