Ohio FB pulls in offer from Army

Fullback Aaron Kemper has all the football attributes that the Army staff would love to have as part of their 2012 football recruiting class.

The best way to describe Kemper is that he is a smaller version of Army's freshman fullback, Larry Dixon.

Smaller in the fact that Kemper who is out of Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods High School is only 5-foot-6, but weigh 205 pounds. But with that package comes a fast muscle ball, who could be a nightmare out of the B-back position, which is where the Black Knights appear to recruiting him to play.

The other plus side is that at Winton Woods, Kemper plays that exact role in their triple option offense. "Yes, that is very intriguing to me and really the plus in their program regarding my interest," Kemper discloses.

"I spoke to Coach Ross (Joe) three days ago," shared Kemper. "He called me to introduced himself and told me that he was calling me to offer me. He told me that I should have already received my offer letter, but I hadn't yet. Then he talked to me about the West Point, the commitment."

"I really like the school, but right now my only concern is the commitment afterwards, so it's something that I have to think about."

With that said, does Kemper plan on taking an official visit to the West Point campus? "We haven't discussed it yet, but I plan on visiting Army," adds the prospect out of the Buckeye state.

Statistically,, Kemper had an outstanding senior season, where he registered 1,543 yards and 27 touchdowns, despite Winton Woods 5-5 record for the 2011 season.
