More on Kemp Jr.

SI.com has a pretty extensive article today on Shawn Kemp Jr., who is apparently having a good showing at the Reebok All-American camp this week.
The article lists Washington as having “strong interest” in Kemp and also does a nice job of detailing his background and ties to the Seattle area. Word is that UW coach Lorenzo Romar is heading up the recruitment of Kemp — that may be where Romar is this week as I know the Husky coaches are on the road.
As detailed on here earlier, however, UW appears to have just two scholarships, at most, left for the Class of 2009 after taking earlier commitments from Charles Garcia Jr., and C.J. Wilcox. UW is thought likely to take one more wing player and one more big man to fill out the class.
According to Scout.com, UW has offers out to five players other than Kemp. Scout does not list Kemp as having an offer from the Huskies.
But Kemp would obviously be a very intriguing prospect, and very attention-getting, and help keep alive in Seattle the name of one of the greatest Sonics ever at a time when the city is mourning the loss of that team.
