2013 running back recruit Jojo Kemp picks Kentucky over Pitt

US PRESSWIRE

Pitt missed out on a potential game-breaker when running back Jojo Kemp chose Kentucky over the Panthers and many others this weekend. Pitt, though was one of his final four schools, so the Panthers were in it until the end. Kemp was one of the team's final big targets left before National Signing Day this week.

According to Rivals, he had more than 20 offers and is a three-star running back. They also list him as the No. 10 all-purpose back in the nation.

It's not as if the Panthers are in dire need of a running back. They still have Rushel Shell who would appear to be the starter for the next two seasons and have Isaac Bennett as a backup for those seasons as well. There's also a guy like Malcolm Crockett, who was only a freshman last year and has some promise, and 2013 recruit Rachid Ibrahim. Still, getting Kemp (who had 37 touchdowns the past two years) would have been a nice addition - particularly after losing Corey Clement earlier to a decommitment and backup running back Corey Davis as well.
