    Tim Kempton’s Brophy Prep squad is off to a 4-0 start and Tim was named MVP of a tournament over Thanksgiving.  Article linked below and also a tweet from an Arizona recruitnik.

    Brophy Prep 6-foot-9 senior post Tim Kempton is playing as well as any player in the state currently. Kempton has really expanded his game!

    Very good news.  With Gabe leaving, this kid could start at the 5 next season.  The limited video I saw of him, he looked more comfortable facing the basket than with his back to it.  But, from this article it looks like he is finding success in the post and on the wing.  Hopefully, sign of good things to come.  He is pretty lean, but from other reports sounds like he is still growing into his body.

    Good work, as always SBum, I had read same things about that tourney run that Tim and his Brophy Prep team went on.

    I’m pretty excited about Kempton, he has the height, we know he is a legit 6’9 now from reports and GK tweets.

    90 – I agree, he is not a “wide bodied” big, but if you look at some photos of him I think he has a frame that projects well, and I think he can nad will keep putting on weight. He looks to be working out hard and has put on some weight already and looks from some photos like he is pretty ripped. Unlike GK where you saw a frame early on that wasn’t going to change much, I think TK could get up to 240/245, and not 220 lean 6’9 guy. Reports have always been great shot/touch, but maybe with some added muscle/pro work ethic from his dad and some coaching he develops some work on the blocks, which seems like he is doing. Could be late bloomer with legit size and good pedigree. Sign me up all day.

    By the way, awesome tweet from coach ott of AP signing his NLOI in a LU Hat and Ott tweeted to SW and TK and said something along the lines of you boys ready to win some chips with this guy. Got me pretty fired up man.

    Great interview, you’re not kidding TMH. Love the part about really getting going in 7th grade, which is late by most standards. Hoping that means he has some big upside still. Love the part about playing time being available, yes, if you’re tall please apply, you’ll play! Kidding.

    Brophy won an early test in the year Friday, Dec. 7, defeating the Chaparral Firebirds 57-49 at Chaparral.  Kempton finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds, his second consecutive double-double.

    Also, saw on twitter he posted photo of a weighing scale, and he is 226…i mentioned above, i see a nice projectable frame, think he could keep putting up lbs with these workouts and be a solid 240 in another year or two….wouldn’t that be something! Love it, this could be a great signing.

    Someone asked recently what Tim Kempton’s game is like. Here is an article from this summer which summarizes it nicely. For the most part it sounded like Gabe Knutsen.

    A really good article/recap here, maybe we got a huge steal here boys. Looks like tiny academic mishap in 2nd semester sr year which happens, but the basketball report here outstanding.

    Stats update for Kempton’s senior year.  Pretty impressive:

    Kyle Odegard@Kyle_Odegard
    Brophy‘s stats aren’t on Maxpreps either. Senior forward @Kempton_18_Tim averaged 25 points and 16 rebounds per game this year.
