Ricardo Kemp (5'11, 175 pounds, 4.5) has been a sleeper prospect for the most part but received interest from major schools like Arkansas, Tulsa, Arkansas State, Penn State, Oklahoma State, Iowa, and of course Tennessee.
Ricardo hasn't participated in any camps or made any unofficial visits but he felt that Tennessee was the place for him. He was recruited by Tennessee assistant Steve Caldwell and had many kind things to say about him.
Oddly enough, Ricardo played at Warren High School with two current Tennessee players. (Bret Smith and Roshaun Fellows)
Kemp can play numerous positions for the Vols as he was a standout running back, wide receiver, defensive back, and return kicks on special teams. The Tennessee Coaching Staff is yet to decide on exactly what position Ricardo will play and Kemp has stated that he doesn't care which position he plays. He is obviously a guy that puts the team first ahead of his personal preference which is always a big key.
Ricardo is a multi sport athlete that also plays basketball, baseball and runs track at Warren High School. He has won awards for both his football and basketball performances as he was first team all-state and all-conference as a running back as he rushed for 1,500+ yards and as a point guard he was first team all-conference.
