Temple coach Geoff Collins (middle) has added another recruit.

Adam Klein, a senior offensive tackle at Episcopal Academy, has made an oral commitment to Temple. Klein is the 16th commitment for Temple’s  recruiting class of 2018. Klein made his choice Monday while visiting the campus.

“When I first met the coaching staff, I loved the energy they had and all were great guys and it’s a place [where] I will get a great education,” Klein said in a telephone interview.

The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Klein, who is an accomplished student, had 12 offers, including ones from Virginia, Army, and Air Force.

Klein played the last few games last year with a stress fracture in his left foot but says he has completely healed. He is entering his third season as the starting left tackle for Episcopal. Temple has recruited him to play tackle as well.
