Kary Vincent Jr. has a decision in mind, but there will be a slight delay before it is made public.
The nation’s No. 17-rated cornerback has pushed back his decision until next week as he prepares to film a video announcement, he told SEC Country on Thursday.
Vincent, the 4-star cornerback from Memorial High School (Port Arthur, Texas), is planning to choose from LSU, Ohio State, Auburn, Florida and TCU. The video is set to be created on Monday, then released shortly thereafter later in the week.
Sources close to the 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back indicate that Vincent is leaning toward LSU. Vincent procured an offer from the Tigers in early May after area recruiter Bradley Dale Peveto watched the cornerback practice.
LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond met with Vincent and his father, a former Texas A&M wide receiver, later that month, eventually leading to a visit during the team’s annual Bayou Picnic.
Vincent and his family came to Baton Rouge, La., and met with the entire LSU coaching staff, including head coach Les Miles, on the visit, and left thoroughly impressed with not only the team and the campus, but how much attention they paid to him.
LSU fans should be quietly confident that Vincent will select the Tigers over TCU, the in-state contender here. Florida, Florida State and Ohio State certainly pose threats here, but coming off the positive visit to LSU and the relationship between Raymond and his family, Vincent is in good shape to join LSU’s 2017 class.
