Ohio State commit and No. 1 DT Taron Vincent was dominant at The Opening Regional D.C.

CLFTON, Va. -- Ohio State commit Taron Vincent earned an invitation to The Opening Finals, and here is his performance that did it.

Taron Vincent, the No. 1 defensive tackle in the 2018 class, lived up to his billing during a dominant performance at The Opening Regional at Centreville High.

After measuring in at 6-foot-1 1/2, 287 pounds, the Ohio State commit put on a power display in which offensive linemen had trouble slowing him down.

A trademark of Vincent's game is playing low with power, and his showed that rep after rep (clips are in the video player at the top of the page) en route to earning an invitation to The Opening Finals. Vincent fired off the ball well and he was quick in getting up the field.

In playing with great leverage, Vincent combined his leg drive and lower body strength with his upper body strength and constantly pushed the offensive lineman backward.

His hands were quick in getting inside on the offensive lineman, but he has to continue to develop his hand work so he can disengage. Also, he needs to build more of a repertoire of moves rather than rely on strength, power and quickness.
