BRADENTON, Fla. — Two Texas defensive backs will make their commitments next month, and both could be LSU bound.
Kary Vincent will join Houston safety Grant Delpit in announcing his pledge at “The Opening” on July 10.
Vincent, a 4-star cornerback from Port Arthur, is down to Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Texas A&M and TCU.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect admits he prefers to play in the SEC.
“It’s the best conference in college football,” Vincent said. “I know other people look at it that way, too. I want to be where the most competition is.”
LSU is expected to land Vincent, who was sporting a Tigers hat at the IMG 7-on-7 tournament this weekend. But he insists there’s still a decision to be made.
“I’m still praying on it,” Vincent said. “I want to end it before my senior season, so whoever’s on my heart that day will be the school.”
Despite his upcoming commitment, Vincent’s recruitment will continue into the fall.
“That won’t shut anything down,” he said. “I’m still going to use all my visits. I haven’t set in stone any officials yet. I don’t know exactly where I’m going.”
However, Vincent plans on taking an official visit to Florida if he doesn’t make it for Friday Night Lights on July 22.
“Florida is recruiting me hard,” Vincent said. “Coach (Torrian) Gray out is trying to get me to visit, and we’re going to make that happen. He wants to me to continue DBU and carry the torch.”
Vincent is ranked the No. 168 overall prospect and No. 17 cornerback nationally in the 247Sports Composite.
