Christian Barmore, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound defensive lineman from Delaware Valley Charter who will be transferring to Neumann-Goretti his senior year, has made an oral commitment to attend Temple.

Barmore made the announcement on Twitter.

“His best attribute is that he has a high motor, is very athletic and has a passion for the game,” said Troy Gore, Barmore’s coach at Delaware Valley Charter, a school that is scheduled to close at the end of the school year although there are factions still fighting the decision.
