Massillon quarterback Kyle Kempt picked Cincinnati over Tennessee, West Virginia and Indiana because it plays in an FBS conference and the university’s engineering program. Kempt has a 4.4 grade-point average and is Washington High School’s top student.

However, when the Bearcats lost head coach Butch Jones to Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville took over, Kempt’s recruitment took a turn. Kempt either decommitted from Cincinnati or Tuberville pulled the offer Jones made to him.

It would seem the latter may be the case judging by Hall’s reaction.

“It was an ugly situation,” Hall said. “I think they thought he was going to go to Tennessee with Butch Jones and they offered another quarterback. But that wasn’t the case. Cincinnati will not be allowed back in Massillon on our campus as long as Jason Hall is in Massillon.”
