One of the top junior quarterbacks in the Midwest is racking up some
major scholarship offers, and another talented junior is drawing plenty
of interest from recruiters.

Junior
quarterback Kyle Kempt (Massillon Washington) moved from Oregon
to Ohio in June after his freshman year in high school.  It has taken
Kempt about a year to become one of the top quarterback prospects in the
Midwest.

The 6-foot-5 and 195-pound Kempt completed close to 60%
of his passes for 1,700 yards with 14 touchdowns and just four
interceptions his sophomore season.  This season Kempt has led the
Tigers to a 2-1 record completing over 60% of his passes for 450 yards
and six touchdowns.  Kempt has been intercepted just once.

Kempt
already has a number of scholarship offers and more are sure to follow.

“I
have five offers,” he said.  “I have Stanford, Tennessee, West
Virginia, Toledo and Bowling Green.

“I’m keeping things open for
now.  I’m getting mail from everywhere in the country.  I know I’m going
to games at West Virginia, Tennessee and Notre Dame, and I’ll go to
another Ohio State game.”

Kempt attended the Buckeyes’ opener
against Akron.

Kempt is also a very good baseball player and it is
not out of the question he goes that direction.

“I’m looking for
any way to get to the next level,” Kempt said.

Marcus McWilson (Youngstown Mooney) doesn’t have any offers yet, but he is another
junior hearing from plenty of schools.

“Akron, Ball State, Kent
State, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, South
Carolina, UCLA, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Buffalo, Ohio University,
Ohio State, Louisville and Cal have been in contact,” McWilson said.  “I
like them all.”

The 6-foot-0 and 190-pound McWilson played free
safety and wide receiver during his sophomore season.  He is playing
running back, wide receiver and safety this season and returns punts and
kickoffs.

McWilson is being recruited as an ‘athlete.’

Kempt is not talking about any favorites, but a
school to definitely keep in mind is Stanford.
