Not surprisingly, the offers are starting to pile up for Fairview football standout Carlo Kemp.

Head coach Tom McCartney said the latest scholarship offer has arrived from the University of Michigan, adding to an impressive array of schools clamoring for Kemp’s services.

In addition to each of the regional Division I programs — CU, CSU, Air Force and Wyoming — Kemp also has received offers from Kansas State, UCLA, Arizona State and Washington.

“He and I had a discussion, and a lot of kids now get caught up in how many offers they get, but our big thing is — are these the right schools?” McCartney said. “He loves the in-state schools and is interested in checking them out. And he’s a really good student, so good academic schools like Michigan certainly will continue to show interest.”

Listed at 6-foot-3, 225 pounds during his junior season last fall, Kemp did a little bit of everything for the Front Range League champion Knights in 2014. In spot duty on offense, Kemp averaged 4.6 yards on 30 carries from the fullback spot while scoring 11 touchdowns. Kemp did most of his damage on defense, however, recording 61 tackles overall. That total included eight sacks, and Kemp also recorded five forced fumbles and an interception.

McCartney said most schools are interested in Kemp as a defensive end or a pass-rushing linebacker in 3-4 defensive schemes.
