North Allegheny senior Tyree Alualu, an all-conference linebacker whose father played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, committed Thursday to Temple.

Alualu announced his decision on social media.

A 6-foot, 215-pound inside linebacker and running back, Alualu received more than a dozen Division I offers. He chose Temple from a list that included Toledo, Marshall, Navy, Coastal Carolina, Bowling Green, Delaware, San Diego State, Cincinnati, Miami (Ohio), James Madison, Kent State, Ohio, Eastern Michigan and Liberty.

Alualu was a two-way standout this past season for North Allegheny, which won a second consecutive WPIAL title and reached the state finals. He rushed for nearly 900 yards and scored 16 touchdowns.

His father, Tyson, played six seasons on the defensive line for the Steelers.
