Travon King, a tight end-defensive end from Woodrow Wilson, has made an oral commitment to Temple. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound King announced his decision on Twitter.
He is a potential fit at linebacker for Temple, according to somebody familiar with the Owls recruiting.
King had originally committed to Rutgers in an early period, but never signed. He was an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey selection after recording 16.5 sacks and helping the Tigers reach the South Jersey Group 3 title where they lost to Delsea, 29-28.
