Eugene prepped at Elwood John-Glenn High School in Huntington, New York and signed with Hofstra. However, he was unable to qualify and the coaches there pointed him in the direction of ASA to get his academics in order.
"They sent me here and it was close to home for me, so it worked out well," Eugene told JCFootball.com. "I got my grades straight and I feel like I really improved as a player and that was (the ASA) coaches' goal and I'd say it's 'Mission Accomplished'."
As a freshman in 2009, Eugene enjoyed a solid season, posting 21 receptions for 335 yards and five touchdowns and this season he jumped to elite status by hauling in 49 receptions for 898 yards and eight touchdowns.
"I'm a threat outside because of my size and my speed, but I can also go across the middle," Eugene noted. "I can be physical, but I can also run by you with my speed.
"I worked really hard on my route-running last summer and that helped me this year with getting open for my quarterback and helping my team."
On the recruiting front, things had been at a bit of a standstill until very recently when Temple asked him to come down for a visit.
"While I was there, I visited with the staff and met the players and they offered me," Eugene said. "I haven't talked to coach (Al) Golden yet, but I committed to the coach recruiting me, coach (Andrew) Dees and he said he was really happy about it.
"I'm going to get in touch with coach Golden to talk to him too, but I'm busy with finals, so it might not be for another day or two."
Eugene is on pace to finish up his AA degree later this month and plans to sign his letter-of-intent on December 15th. He will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
