Two South Jersey high school juniors gave commitments to play football at Temple.
David Hood, a running back at Absegami, gave his verbal commitment on Sunday. On Thursday, Camden’s multiple-purpose player Sean Chandler made his pledge. Chandler is being recruited to play cornerback, where he was a 2012 second-team all-South Jersey selection by The Inquirer.
The 6-foot, 170-pounder returned two interceptions for touchdowns last season. As a wideout, Chandler had 565 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He also scored on two punt returns and a kickoff return.
Hood finished the season with 976 rushing yards, 489 receiving yards and 15 total touchdowns. The 5-11, 185-pounder posted a time of 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
