Wide receiver Marcus Kemp of Layton High in Utah has confirmed he accepted a scholarship offer from the Warriors.
"I really like the coaches and the program," Kemp said.
Kemp said he is 6 feet 4, 180 pounds and is capable of running 40 yards in sub-4.6 seconds.
Kemp said he turned down two other offers to commit to the Warriors.
Kemp said he received the UH offer this past weekend and accepted shortly thereafter.

Here are updates on former Warriors:
• Jeremy Bryant, cornerback — After UH's Pro Day in 2011, Bryant decided he was fit enough to try out for another team. He is now a police officer with the LAPD. "Football prepares you for a lot — the ups and downs, how to deal with the unexpected," said Bryant, who is married and has three children.
• Spencer Smith, safety — The Kell High graduate is back at his alma mater as a special education teacher. Last year, he was an assistant coach with the football team and head coach of the girls' varsity basketball team. This year, he coaches Kell's varsity linebackers, and is head coach of both the boys' JV basketball team and wrestling team. Next year? He hopes to be back teaching and coaching in Hawaii. He is an applicant at three OIA schools.
• Ryan Henry, receiver/punt returner — Henry is keeping busy as a football coach for a private school in Culver City and a PE instructor Overland Elementary. His surgically repaired ACL has healed, and he has received some interest from indoor football teams.
• Shane Austin, quarterback — After a successful stint in the Indoor Football League, Austin has been invited to training camp by the Spokane Shock of the Arena Football League. Camp starts in February. In the meantime, Austin is an instructor with football clinics run by former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia. Austin also is involved in his father's soon-to-be-launched development program for football and baseball players.
