I caught up with Winchendon postgraduate Adam Kemp last night a few hours after he gave Marist head coach Chuck Martin a verbal commitment.

The New York native said that Marist had been recruiting him consistently since last spring when he was still a senior at Vernon Verona Sherrill High School, but it was only recently that they finally offered him a scholarship.

"I had a couple of other offers but as soon as Marist offered I knew that was where I wanted to be," Kemp said.
