DeLand RB Kemp commits to USF at SuperBull

TAMPA -- USF's annual SuperBull gathering of top recruits produced a big commitment at a key position for 2013, with DeLand running back JoJo Kemp committing to play for Skip Holtz in 2013.

"What put them over the top is they have great academics," said Kemp, 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, who said he chose USF over final choices West Virginia, Kentucky, Arizona State and Purdue. "I'm a football player, but I'm a person too, and I want to be successful not only in football, but in education. I know I'll get a good chance to play my freshman year. I'm ready to change the program. I don't want to maintain something. I want to make the program grow bigger."

It's another big Orlando-area commitment for the Bulls, who picked one up from Winter Park quarterback Asiantii Woulard last week. His primary recruiter will also be his position coach at USF -- Larry Scott. Kemp said that USF coach Skip Holtz was excited to get his commitment in person: "The conversation went well. He was jumping up and down. I kind of liked that. Holtz is old, so if he can jump without pulling anything, that was great."
