Neshaminy TE/DE Kiser Terry issues oral declaration to Temple
The Neshaminy Redskins figure to be among the thick of things and competing for another berth in the District 1 AAAA championship this fall. And one of those returning Redskins can now add the phrase “Temple recruit” to his resume.
Kiser Terry, a 6’3, 220-pound tight end/defensive end combination for the Langhorne-based program, issued an oral declaration to Temple Saturday evening during the Big-33 Football Classic in Hershey, according to southeastern Pennsylvania prep sportswriter Dom Consentino.
Consentino reported the Neshaminy senior-to-be held a total of six FBS and FCS offers, including Delaware, Iowa, Old Dominion, Rutgers and Villanova, in addition to Philadelphia-based Temple, which competes in the Mid-American Conference.
Terry is the 21st Pennsylvania prospect to issue a pre-season college declaration and the second such prospect to do so on the defensive line, joining Central Bucks East senior-to-be Jake O’Donnell. Terry is one of 13 athletes from southeastern Pennsylvania (including District 1, District 12 and the Inter-AC League) who have declared to Division-1 football programs this 2012 recruiting class.
A fixture at defensive end for the Redskins, Terry had a respectable junior season, posting 47 tackles (40 solo) and a team-best six sacks, earning the distinction of being the only Redskin defender to finish the season with more than five sacks last year. He averaged 3.9 tackles per game, finishing two games with multiple sacks. He also forced three fumbles and deflected a pair of passes as part of a Neshaminy defensive unit (including reserves) which allowed an average of 15.9 points per game, holding nine of 14 opponents to 14 points or less.
Neshaminy finished 12-2 last season, reaching the District 1 AAAA championship game opposite North Penn.
