Update: A quick analysis on Kemp's skills can be found here.

Michigan received some great news on the football recruiting trail on Sunday afternoon in the form of a commitment from defensive end/linebacker Carlo Kemp (Boulder, Colorado), according to the Denver Post.

Kemp is a four-star prospect and the 14th-ranked defensive end in the class of 2016, according to the 247 Composite rankings.

He fills a huge need for the Wolverines, where he figures to wind up at the BUCK position, which Mario Ojemudia and Royce Jenkins-Stone have occupied this season. Outside of Lawrence Marshall, there is not a whole lot of depth there at all.

Kemp also plans on graduating in December and enrolling early at U-M this January, according to the article in the Denver Post.

"Do I see myself being there? Yes," Kemp said to the Post. "Definitely the town (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and atmosphere. And, of course, the academics at the forefront of it all. Michigan is one of the top, top academic programs and, of course, along with playing top-caliber football."

Kemp is the 21st commitment of Michigan's 2016 class.

We will have more on his commitment shortly.
