Temple football coach Geoff Collins is smiling this morning after getting four more commitments from high school players.
Two of the new signees are defensive linemen. Tyreke Young, a 6-foot-3-inch, 208-pound lineman from South Carolina, had 62 tackles and 14 tackles for loss as a senior at Hilton Head High School. David Nwaogwugwu had 28 tackles for loss as a senior at DeWitt Clinton High School in the Bronx, New York.
Linebacker Travon King from Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden also signed. He 21.5 sacks as a senior and also accumulated 700 yards receiving.
The only offensive player of the four is Onasis Neely, a running back from East Pennsboro High School near Harrisburg. Neely had 32 rushing touchdowns as a senior.
Temple’s incoming class is now up to 26 high school signees and three transfer players.
Six players — freshman quarterback Trad Beatty, freshman offensive lineman Isaac Moore, freshman wide receivers Sean Ryan and Kadas Reams, transfer defensive back Rock Ya-Sin and transfer offensive lineman JD Gomez — have already enrolled.
