Notes

Comments

5/13/21

Notre Dame commit, ranked No. 9 in the Illinois 2021 class. Athletic 6-foot-1 200-pound frame, strong lower-half. One of the premier right-handed arms in the state. Short and clean ¾ arm action, extremely quick arm and low effort throughout; ball jumps out of his hand. Easy, repeatable mechanics, drop and drive type delivery, strides in-line with the plate, minimal effort appearance. Started on the mound for Saint Charles North and tossed 5.1 innings while only allowing 1 hit and striking out 7. Kempe featured a fastball that sat 90-92 mph early on, settling in at 88-91 mph later in the game, with arm-side life, jump through the zone and feel for both sides of the plate. Featured a high-spinning, tight slider at 74-76 mph with sharp 10/4 action. Ability to throw it both for strikes and to put hitters away. Continues to prove he is one of the top arms in the state.

Verbally committed to Notre Dame.

Uncommitted entering the event, Kempe pitched his way to notoriety and much D1 interest shortly after the ProCase. At 6-foot, 180 pounds, he features a 90-92 mph fastball which spun up to 2,484 rpm and averaged 2,371. Kempe worked quickly with low effort via a compact circle to a three-quarter release point. As good as his fastball was, his hard curveball was even better. Sitting 77-78 mph, the breaker bit late and hard with tight spin, consistently in the 2,800s, topping at 2,890 rpm. Showing great depth and averaging -12.8 IVB and -11 HB it repeatedly induced swing/miss. He filled up the zone with both pitches and fielded his position well. Overall, Kempe was a huge “winner” at the event and has since committed to Notre Dame.
