Marion, Iowa offensive tackle prospect Andy Kuempel (6-foot-7, 250 pounds) has been almost like a blur this summer, between getting ready for his senior football season, then throw in basketball camps and working various youth camps to his ever growing list of summer responsibilities.
“Yeah, I've been keeping really busy this summer," Andy Kuempel said. "I'm lifting for football, plus I'm also playing some AAU basketball this summer as well as working at a few kids camps."
Kuempel made six camps visits this summer, and Kuempel feels good about his camp experiences.
"Overall I can't complain at all about going to the various summer football camps. My hope was to be able to show some of the coaches what I could do, and I feel that I was able to accomplish that this summer. I really was happy to be able to land an early offer (Kansas), because I wasn't planning on that at all. I went to camps at Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa, Iowa State, Wisconsin and Purdue this summer and I enjoyed every camp. Most of the schools said that they will be requesting my early senior tape this fall."
So has Kuempel started to give his college decision any additional thoughts this summer?
"I have been giving it some thought, and obviously Kansas is at the top of my list for now. I'm just going to work hard the rest of the summer, then I'll see how things go for me in the early fall before I make any type of decision."
Andy Kuempel has an offer from the University of Kansas.
