Summer camp update, plus NW/West 100 prospects

Good stuff starting to filter out from WSU’s high school summer camp.

1) The QB MVP was a kid named Cody Kempt. He looks to have nice size and good speed and athleticism at the QB position. Some things I’ve read about him in the last 2 days:
“I watched his vid clips, and he looks pretty good . I noticed in the clips that he plays almost exclusively out of the shotgun and is always throwing the ball on a roll-out.His release is extremely efficient and quick and his throwing motion is effortless. Great touch on his ball. “

Chris Fetters, editor-in-chief for Dawgman.com:

“I honestly think Cody is the second-coming of Mark Brunell, have for a while. He got good size, speed and a nice release. People sure are enamored with Kevin Riley, the top QB prospect in the NW from Oregon…and they should be. But Cody is bigger and faster and is more of a threat on the run. Kevin has a much bigger arm and is more accurate as a rule. He’s also a coach’s son, which helps. I really don’t know why Cody only has two offers at this point. Probably because of the system he plays in. He doens’t really throw from the pocket and is always in the shotgun, so maybe coaches are finding it hard to really evaluate him.He’s going to Colorado and Colorado State this week, so we’ll see if they jump on the Kempt bandwagon. “

More on camp:

WASHINGTON STATE’S FOUR-DAY youth football summer camp concluded Saturday with a pair of in-state standouts — Spokane’s Andy Mattingly and Tacoma’s Grady Maxwell — earning themselves scholarship offers. That was the highlight of a week of sterling performances and top-notch instruction.

Andy Mattingly took home the defensive backs MVP award, but Washington State sees him at tight end and outside linebacker. The 6-3.5, 220-pound Mattingly said he had a great time, in part because of what happened after the camp ended.”They offered me,” said Mattingly, who hails from Spokane’s Mead High.He remains open to all schools, but says “WSU is definitely my leader.” He added, “I’ve always wanted to play Pac-10 and I’ve always wanted to play there.”Mattingly shined in a number of drills and was able to spend some quality time with all of the Washington State staff.”I talked to every single coach and I liked them all — there’s not one there that I don’t like,” he said.Mattingly came to the camp on the heels of a one-day turn at Oregon. In addition to the Cougs, he holds offers from Boise State and Idaho. Last season he posted 90 tackles (66 solo), grabbed two INTs, caught 30 passes for 401 yards and scored 4 TDs.

WSU AND GRADY MAXWELL took a step toward adding another link to the Curtis Connection, the legendary pipeline of football talent (Levenseller, Mobley, Hunter, Pointer and more) flowing to Pullman from Tacoma’s Curtis High.Maxwell (6-2, 315) was in Pullman for just one day, but two stellar practice sessions provided all the impetus for the coaching staff to offer him.Per NCAA rules, a prospect has to leave campus before a school can offer. After Maxwell had done that, coach Bill Doba gave him the good news.”He talked about camp for awhile and then he said ‘Young man, you’ve got yourself a scholarship,'” said Maxwell.Maxwell wasn’t there long enough to have an opportunity to take home any camp awards, but the offensive lineman’s first scholarship offer was a bit more important to him.”I only came for one day but I think I walked out of there with something way better than an award,” Maxwell said with a laugh.Maxwell commented the WSU camp was highly instructional, covered a lot of different game type situations and afforded him the opportunity to spend time with OL coach George Yarno and the Cougar coaching staff.”I got a chance to meet coach Yarno and talk to him,” said Maxwell. “He’s a real nice guy, I like him a lot. I got to talk to basically the whole coaching staff.”Maxwell said he isn’t in a rush to make a decision.”I don’t have any kind of timetable,” he said. “If that’s where I feel I want to be at, and that’s the right place for me to be, then I’ll commit whenever that is.”

Notes:Mattingly becomes the second player from Mead to receive an offer, along with RB Skylar Jessen.Maxwell’s cousin is Marcus Trufant. Part of a very close extended family, Trufant spends much of his free time with Maxwell. The lineman says Trufant’s helped him immeasurably both on and off the field, regularly calling to check on how he’s doing in the classroom and on the field and attending as many of Curtis’ games as his schedule allows.Maxwell’s prep coach is the legendary Bob Lucey, who says Maxwell ranks up there with the best offensive linemen he’s coached in his nearly three decades at Curtis. “He is a load,” Lucey told Cougfan.com earlier this year. “And he is just a great human being. He has great presence, leadership and he is a great competitor.”Some of the notable Curtis alumni who have suited up for the crimson and gray include: Torey Hunter, C.J. Davis, Virgil Williams, Singor Mobley, Deron Pointer and Mike Levenseller. Research is ongoing but Levenseller appears to still hold the SPSL season record with 16 interceptions. Levy’s brother, Steve Levenseller, is an assistant coach at Curtis. Carlton Coard (5-11, 185), senior-to-be wide receiver for Washington State, also did his prep turn at Curtis.
