6-1, 220, 4.7
Allendale-Fairfax High School
Fairfax, South Carolina


Allendale-Fairfax High School is off to a slow start at 1-4 because they have been playing against larger high schools, but that should change as region play begins this week.

Vincent has been playing well this season as he already has 56 tackles, 7 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries and 1 interception that he returned 60 yards for a touchdown. The star linebacker has recorded 20 tackles during the second game of the season.

Vincent committed to Clemson back on June 23, and he is still very committed to the Tigers. "Yes, it's real firm. That's all I talk about. That is helping me concentrate on what I need to do this year."

What is the 6-1, 200 pound prospect looking forward to the most about becoming a Tiger?

"I'm looking to having a great season next year. I'm looking forward to coming in to play. If not, I want to help them in any way that I can. I want it to work out real well. I am going to go up there and work hard to do everything I can to help the team."

Vincent is also working hard in the classroom to make sure he can attend Clemson next year. "I just took ACT last week. I'm scheduled to take SAT next weekend on Oct. 11. My grades are in good order. I should make the honor role this quarter."

The Clemson coaching staff calls frequently to check on the prize recruit. "I talked to Coach West not too long ago. He called to see how things are going. He wanted to know when I am coming up for another game."

Vincent watched the Tigers battle Georgia earlier this season, and he plans to be back in the Valley to watch this year's Bowden Bowl. We will continue to keep you updated on this future Tiger, right up through signing day 2004.
