Kemp misses Junior Day in Lincoln

Nebraska has been trying to hit the state of Missouri pretty hard so far this year. One of their top quarterback, tight end and wide receiver prospects all hail from the "Show Me State". The quarterback and tight end either made it in for junior day or right after, however the wide receiver wasn't able to. Does he have a plan to make it to Lincoln at all?

One of the better players in the Midwest this year is Wes Kemp. Kemp, a 6-foot-4 and 215-pound wide receiver, from St. Louis (Mo.) De Smet Jesuit wasn't able to make junior day in Lincoln this past weekend.

"No, I didn't make the junior day," Kemp said. "I wasn't able to make it. I will be going to the spring game though."

Not making it up to Lincoln wasn't because he wasn't interested. Travel just isn't as easy for those on the east side of Missouri to get to Nebraska as it is for those on the west.

"I haven't been up there to Lincoln before. The coaches have been trying to get me up there, but I haven't been able to get up there."

Kemp happens to be friends with another St. Louis area standout. The two spoke before the weekend about the Nebraska junior day, but only one was able to get to Nebraska this week.

"I know that I talked to Blaine Gabbert earlier and he was heading up there. I told him that I was trying to get up there too."

Gabbert actually wasn't able to make it to the junior day in Lincoln. Kemp knew that Gabbert was hoping for that Nebraska offer once he got there. Gabbert did get that offer.

"Oh yeah, he was hoping to get an offer from Nebraska when he went up there. That would be good. That would be another school we have in common."

In closing out the conversation, Kemp mentioned that he was getting ready for a combine in April. The date of the combine actually happens to be the same day as the Nebraska spring game. It seems that Kemp now isn't sure again about when he will see Nebraska.

Last year, Kemp had 780 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. His numbers were down from his sophomore year because of injury, but Kemp still hauled in all-state and all-metro honors.
