That's not really accurate. Here's the deal:

Kemp signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at the University of Kentucky, but was kicked off the team before the season started for allegedly pawning a teammate's jewelry. He transferred mid-season to Trinity Valley Community College in Texas, but was too late to suit up. After a semester at TVCC, 19-year-old Shawn Kemp declared himself eligible for the 1989 NBA Draft without any collegiate experience.
