South Fayette’s Ryan Coe, a nationally ranked kicker, switched his college commitment Monday to Delaware.

The senior announced his decision on Twitter. Coe had committed to Temple in September.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound kicker and punter was a special teams star for South Fayette, which won the WPIAL Class 4A title this past season. He made 9 of 13 field goal attempts and 60 of 62 extra points

But his kickoffs were just as impactful.

Coe sent 70 of his 87 kickoffs into the end zone, a touchback rate of 80 percent that forced opponents to consistently start drives at the 20.

KohlsKicking.com, which runs a series of special teams camps, ranks him No. 21 overall nationally among senior kickers.

The early signing period for seniors starts Wednesday.
