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!November 26, 2012 at 7:05 pm #8148
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.November 27, 2012 at 1:50 am #8154
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.December 4, 2012 at 3:23 am #8278
Here is a good interviewDecember 4, 2012 at 3:25 am #8279
Recent game..37 points, 11 boards in a lossDecember 4, 2012 at 3:27 am #8280
Sorry..wish I’d find this all at the same time

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.December 11, 2012 at 3:30 am #8373
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.December 11, 2012 at 4:01 am #8374
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.January 13, 2013 at 12:40 am #8880

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.February 14, 2013 at 11:36 am #9450
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.March 1, 2013 at 5:57 pm #9645
