LSU’s hunt for cornerbacks has now spread to the Lone Star State.
The nation’s No. 17 cornerback, Kary Vincent, whose father played wide receiver for Texas A&M, received an offer from the Tigers Wednesday night.
LSU marks the four-star prospect’s 26th offer and Vincent’s eighth from an SEC school. Naturally, the Aggies offered the in-state product a earlier this month, just around the same time that Mississippi State and Florida did the same.
Missouri, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Arkansas are also in the mix for Texas’ No. 27 overall prospect in the Class of 2017.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder intercepted five passes last season at Memorial High School (Port Arthur, Texas).
Vincent has put himself on LSU’s radar as defensive backs coach Corey Raymond remains in search of more secondary targets during this NCAA evaluation period.
LSU missed out on its top cornerback target when Louisiana three-star prospect Cheyenne Labruzza committed to Tennessee on April 16. That leaves New Orleans three-star Tre’ Swilling as the Tigers’ No. 1 cornerback target at the moment, along with a handful of other budding prospects that have recently picked up offers from LSU.
The interesting twist here is that Vincent is close with numerous prospects with ties to the LSU program.
Vincent is friends with Class of 2016 Tigers signee Eric Monroe and plays in the 7-on-7 circuit with major Class of 2017 safety target Grant Delpit.
