Abington defensive end picks Temple

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Rick O’Brien is reporting that Abington defensive end Bryan Osei recently gave an oral commitment to Temple after backing out of his commitment to Villanova.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound senior had been Villanova’s 10th recruit for the Class of 2012.  Now, he’s the 25th player in Temple’s recruiting class.

"I reevaluated things," Osei told O'Brien. "I like that Temple's football program is on the rise and on the verge of doing big things. Also, it turns out that the school has a higher educational ranking for psychology [his intended major]."

In addition to Temple and Villanova, the 17-year-old had scholarship offers from Kent State, Old Dominion and Stony Brook. Osei, who committed to the Wildcats in mid-August, told O'Brien he informed Nova's coaches about his new decision this past weekend.
