Kentucky signee JoJo Kemp did “my research” on the Texas Tech offense under Neal Brown and liked what he saw. He played for three different head coaches in high school and had to learn a variety of offenses.
“The good thing is I did learn a lot by having three different coaches,” Kemp , a power lifter who went to the state meet two straight years, said. “But I think with me being a complete back, I am made for an offense like the one coach Brown uses. I am still learning and want to improve and get better. I know there are things I can learn to make me even better. I feel like Kentucky is on the rise and making a new start. We can only go up.
“I am going in believing we can win. That’s the attitude I will stay with the whole year. I will keep all the negative thoughts out. I will always keep thinking positive.”
That was made easier after 50,000 or more fans came to UK’s spring game. The Florida running back read about that and watched on TV.
“I felt like I was at the game,” Kemp said. “I loved that. Honestly, it just gave me the chills.
“This month has gone by so slow. I have been working out. I am just so ready and excited to be up there and start being around my teammates and pushing each other to get better. I know I am going to be in the right environment to grow as a person on and off the field. I am super excited and can’t wait to get there in early June.”
