Camden Catholic linebacker Jarred Alwan has committed to attend Temple University on a football scholarship.

The 6-2, 220-pound Alwan was a first-team All-South Jersey selection as a junior at Camden Catholic. He led the Irish to a 10-1 record and a berth in the Non-Public 2 title game.

An instinctive inside linebacker, Alwan made 86 tackles and had two INTs for Camden Catholic. As a running back, he carried 79 times for 645 yards (8.1-average) and 12 touchdowns. He also caught six passes for 179 yards (29.8-yard average).

Alwan is regarded as a three-star recruit by rivals.com

Alwan had offers from Boston College, West Virginia and Massachusetts.

He becomes the latest in a loaded class of 2013 of SJ football players to make verbal commitments.

Here's the list:

Greg Webb, DT, Timber Creek: Penn State

Myles Nash, DE, Timber Creek: Rutgers

Jarred Alwan, LB, Camden Catholic: Temple

Buddy Brown, LB, Williamstown: Temple

Rashad Kinlaw, QB, Absegami: Notre Dame

Eli Woodard, DB, Eastern: Ohio State

Zaire Williams, RB, Cherokee: West Virginia

Corey Clement, RB, Glassboro: Pitt

Anthony Averett, QB, Woodbury: Alabama

Brandon Bell, LB, Oakcrest: Penn State

Jim Cooper, PK, Mainland: Temple

Shane Rafter, OL, Moorestown: Temple
