The Tigers received some long-expected good news today when four-star cornerback prospect Kary Vincent Jr. made things official with his verbal commitment to LSU.
Vincent is a native of Port Arthur, Texas, and was recruited by Bradley Dale Peveto and Corey Raymond.
Vincent ranks 122nd overall in the 247 Sports national composite and 17th at the cornerback position. He had offers from every major program in the state of Texas, along with a slew of major programs from Ohio State and Michigan to Bama, Georgia, Florida, FSU, etc...
Again, I’ll save the breakdown for Dan and cDub, but I see an instinctive player with nice top-end speed. I particularly like the way he recognizes what is happening around him quickly and stays with his assignments, and he high-points the ball well. I’m a little concerned about his fluidity in man-to-man coverage and ability to start and stop, but there aren’t a ton of examples here in his highlights either.
Still, this is a strong pickup, making three commitments in three days overall, and two for 2017 following yesterday’s offensive line commit. Vincent makes 17 commitments in the 2017 class, and moves LSU up from No. 5 to 4 in the composite team rankings.
