Rivals.com three-star running back JoJo Kemp announced a long awaited decision on Friday night from his home DeLand. The Rivals.com 10th ranked running back in the country and 64th ranked player in the state of Florida announced his commitment to the University of Kentucky, choosing the Wildcats over USF, Pittsburgh and West Virginia.

"I made the decision last [Thursday] night. It was important to surround myself with good people to be successful." said Kemp, "Kentucky is a great place."

The 5-foot-10, 189-pound all-purpose back will be headed to Lexington to play for first year head coach Mark Stoops.

"I feel like I have someone I can trust in, with [Kentucky Assistant] Coach [Chad] Scott." Said Kemp. "I got close with Coach Scott. He's been there. He was an SEC All-American and did big things. I want to do that too."

Kemp will enroll in Kentucky in the fall, where he is looking forward to, "experience a whole new life and make big things happen."

Kemp will be joined by his close friend Jeff Badet from Freedom High School (Orlando, Fla.). Badet is announced his commitment to Kentucky on Friday night as well.
