Wideout Marcus Kemp is moving back to Hawaii to attend classes and train for the Warriors’ pro day in March.
Kemp completed his UH eligibility at the end of the Hawaii Bowl, finishing 2016 with team highs in receptions (73), receiving yards (1,100) and TD catches (8). He also made three tackles on special teams.
Kemp, who never redshirted, needs 20 credits to earn a degree in economics.
After weighing several options, he decided to return to Manoa for the spring semester, where he will take 12 credits — two on-line classes, two in-class courses — while training. He is deciding between Tactical Strength and Chad Ikei for his training.
Kemp remains on football scholarship. He said he chose to train in Hawaii partly because quarterback Ikaika Woolsey is still living in Hawaii. Woolsey completed his UH eligibility at the end of Hawaii Bowl. He earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology and family resources last month.
“I know Ikaika will be there, so it’ll be easy to throw,” Kemp said. “And, also, I did want to finish school. The easiest route is to stay in Hawaii.”
