  • Lemm has the size, speed and athleticism that college coaches are looking for. He is 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and runs a 4.6 to 4.7 forty yard dash. And he's just now going into his junior year of high school.

    Several college coaches have already noticed the talented youngster.

    "Mississippi State sends me letters every now and then," said Lemm. "And I've talked to a couple of coaches from other places such as Arkansas State University. I've also received letters from Jacksonville State, places like that."

    One of the coaches that he talked to is an assistant coach from Mississippi State.

    "I've talked to Coach (John) Hevesy," said Lemm. "He said he likes my explosiveness and how I come off the ball. He told me to continue working on my speed."

    Lemm is being proactive with his recruitment by attending camps and combines.

    "I have gone to the Big Dawg Camp at Mississippi State," said Lemm. "I have also gone to a camp at Ole Miss and a camp at Jacksonville State. I have also gone to combines throughout the state of Mississippi."

    One of the combines that he has attended is the Steve Robertson Southeast Select North Combine held in Tupelo, Mississippi this past weekend. He explained why he decided to attend that particular combine.

    "I came to this combine to help get my name out there and also to see what I can do (against other players in the state of Mississippi)," said Lemm.

    While Lemm is a gifted athlete, he's also gifted in the classroom. And he hopes that impresses college coaches.

    "I like to think that they like my size and my athleticism but hopefully my academics also has something to do with them liking me," he said.
