Temple has received its first football commitment for the class of 2018 when Sayreville, N.J., defensive back Eli Clark announced on Twitter he would be attending the school.
A person familiar with Temple recruiting said that the 6-foot-3, 165-pound Clark is being recruited as a cornerback but would have the ability to slide to safety.
Clark, who also plays basketball, stated in the secondary and played some wide receiver on a Sayreville team that went mainly two-platoon. He helped lead the Bombers to a 10-2 record and the North II, Group 4 championship.
In other recruiting news Temple continues to be in the picture for Imhotep OL Justin Johnson (6-6, 330). Johnson attended Temple's spring game.
