The Denver Post reached out to Kemp after 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."

Michigan now has 21 commits in the 2016 class, which is ranked ninth nationally. 10 of the future Wolverines are rated as four stars by 247Sports' composite rankings.
