FORMER PENN STATE quarterback Kevin Newsome has given Temple a verbal commitment that he intends to transfer, sources told the Daily News.
Newsome took part in spring practice with the Nittany Lions last year but left the program in August. He will have 2 years of eligiblity, and can play immediately because he did not play last season.
The Owls' starter is Chris Coyer, who also has 2 years left on North Broad Street. He took over late in the season and looked impressive running a similar spread offense to the one Steve Addazio ran as the coordinator at Florida. Coyer was the Most Outstanding Offensive Player in Temple's 37-15 New Mexico Bowl win over Wyoming.
