Hawaii WR transfers to Temple

I would normally say that this kind of move would cause a culture and weather shock, but, seeing as it involves a player raised in New Jersey, never mind that angle.

Regardless, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported earlier Saturday that Keith Kirkwood has transferred into the Temple football program.  The wide receiver spent 2013 at Hawaii, and will have to sit out the 2014 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.

The 6-3, 210-pound receiver will have three years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015.

“We’re excited to have Keith join us,” head coach Matt Rhule said. “He’s a good academic student who had a good season as a true freshman out there. We’re happy to have him join us.”

The good season to which Rhule alluded included 12 catches for 250 yards and four touchdowns. His 20.8 yards per catch was easily tops on the Rainbow Warriors, while his touchdown receptions were tied for second.

For the record, Kirkwood was a two-star prospect coming out of high school in Neptune, NJ, in 2013.

    Since it’s to Temple, he should be allowed to play right away.
