Wes Kemp, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound wide receiver from DeSmet Jesuit High School in St. Louis (Mo.), now has a total of 10 scholarship offers with his latest coming from Indiana and Michigan State.
Along with the Hoosiers and Spartans, he also has offers from Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ole Miss and Nebraska. Although he remains "very open", he says his top three are Wisconsin, Nebraska and Illinois. Those three have a solid lead over Missouri, Mississippi, Kansas State and Michigan State.
"I also like Michigan a lot too, but they haven't offered," Kemp said. "They'd probably be in my top five if they offered. I love the whole school and that they are a powerhouse every year. They love to pass the ball and always produce great wide receivers. They were at my school not too long ago and I think they will offer me."
Kemp, a Scout.com four-star recruit who is also ranked as the Midlands No. 12 overall prospect, doesn't plan on attending any camps this summer, but he will be taking unofficial visits. "I'll visit Mississippi, Nebraska and Missouri for sure," Kemp said. "I'll have my for-sure top five set this summer and those are the ones that I will visit officially in the fall. I really want to go where I can compete and possibly play early. I'll probably commit after the season ends, in early December."
He says that Illinois is recruiting him the hardest. "I get a lot of text messages from them," he said. "They also send me the most mail. They keep in contact with me about my summer plans and definitely want me to visit them officially."
One of the schools that Kemp is planning on visiting this summer is Nebraska. "They have like four of the top 100 offensive lineman recruits already committed and that's great news for the quarterback," Kemp said. "They also have a top quarterback and throw the ball a lot. They always bring in top players, plus their facilities are second to none. They are a perennial powerhouse and I get along well with coach (recruiting coordinator) Kevin Cosgrove. Coach Cos is really fired-up and an electric guy. I really want to get to know the rest of the coaches too."
He reports a 3.1 core GPA and a 19 ACT.
