Massillon (Ohio) Washington quarterback Kyle Kempt is going back home after committing to Oregon State while on an official visit.

Kyle Kempt, an early commitment to Cincinnati is currently on an official visit to Oregon State. He was offered a scholarship by the Beavers and didn't waste much time in jumping on it.

"Oregon State just felt like the best place for me," Kempt texted moments ago. "I had a gut feeling it would be even before the visit. I'm extremely happy to be a part of Beaver nation and represent the University in a great way."

Kempt is a big quarterback with a nice upside to him. He has elite level arm strength and can get the ball down the field. He had a big senior season throwing for 3,056 yards and 32 touchdowns and will fit in very well in the Beavers pro-style offense.

Kempt is originally from Oregon and grew up in Portland. He took an unofficial visit to Oregon State when he was a sophomore and that familiarity was another plus in his decision.

"I saw a lot of familiar faces on my trip," Kempt said. "I was just really comfortable there and I really like the coaching staff. It's a great fit for me, football wise and every other area. It has been an interesting recruitment for sure but I'm thrilled to be a Beaver and thank God for the opportunity."

Kempt originally committed to the Bearcats but decided to open things up after former head coach Butch Jones left for Tennessee.

Greg Biggins has been covering recruiting for over 15 years, covering the West since the mid-1990's and currently serves as a national analyst for Scout.com/FOXSportsNext.
