Michigan lands four-star DE Carlos Kemp

The Michigan Wolverines have been one of the better surprises of the 2015 season. That is partially due to the team having a very good defense.

At one point this year, the team went three straight games without allowing a single point to be scored and outscored opponents 98-0. It looks like their defense will be very good next year as four-star defensive end Carlos Kemp has committed to the Wolverines.

Per his mother, 4-star DE Carlo Kemp has committed to Michigan.

The Wolverines landed the six-foot-three, 225-pound Colorado native, who chose Michigan over rival Notre Dame, spoke with the Denver Post following his decision.

“Do I see myself being there? Yes,” Kemp said. “Definitely the town (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and atmosphere. And, of course, the academics at the forefront of it all. Michigan is one of the top, top academic programs and, of course, along with playing top-caliber football.”

The chance to play for Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh, Kemp said, was also a huge factor as “everything I wanted is at Michigan.”

Kemp is the 14th-ranked strong side defensive end in the nation and the top-ranked player in the state of Colorado. His commitment gives the Wolverines 21 for the 2016 class.
