“It helps that we’re succeeding,” Collins said on February. 13. “It helps that we made a great run at the end, and this helps that we’re playing in a good bowl game. But I think it’s more the actual relationships, the quality of the establishment, the quality of the academic support that’s really solidified this selecting class.”
Collins has said he would like to build elite depth each and every position. If his long term seasons transpire like he’ll require it. Temple used 42 beginners through the first 12 game titles to tie for 10th-most during the Football Bowl Subdivision. Amid American Athletic Conference teams, only East Carolina used much more starters.
Ten different offensive linemen produced starts during the regular months. Four started at still left guard alone. The inbound class has five pungent linemen. All of them are 6 feet Five inches or taller.

Temple can even lose significant contributors with the wide receiver position once the season. Senior Adonis Jennings, who leads the team with 691 yards, in addition to redshirt senior Keith Kirkwood, who is tied by using Jennings for the team lead with receiving touchdowns, are both graduating. Each players caught 39 moves in the regular season for you to tie for second guiding sophomore Isaiah Wright, and both wear single-digit volumes to signify they are among the team’s toughest players.

Stevenson played both wide radio and cornerback for Montour High School in close proximity to Pittsburgh.
At Geoff Collins’ introductory press seminar, athletic director Pat Kraft claimed Collins “can recruit anywhere and everywhere.” Collins’ next class includes two game enthusiasts from Sweden. Oskar Andersson, a 6-foot-6-inch, 298-pound bad lineman, and Isaac Moore, a 6-foot-7-inch, 311-pound offensive lineman, may join the team.

Freshman quarterback Todd Centeio, who also become a member of the team in January, is the only true freshman to play this season. He played quickly against UMass and South Florida. Centeio may be since held out of online games in hopes of preserving all four several years of his eligibility.
Although most of the freshmen never have played, some of them are impressing their very own teammates and coaches in practice. Jr . safety Delvon Randall said freshman shielding backs George Reid and Melinda Braswell will be impact players.
“The upcoming is bright and the interesting depth that we’ve created is actually special and the leadership the sophomores and juniors have provided especially in the last three to four weeks, is going to be big for this program’s future,” Collins mentioned on Nov. 21. “So I am just really excited about adding to that using this type of recruiting class.”
