Texas Making a Move for Kary Vincent

When you are one of the top, cover corners in America you will have plenty of choices. Kary Vincent, JR is one of the very best at his position. With great anticipation, burst, closing speed and flexibility, he has attracted the attention of some of the biggest programs around.

Kary Vincent, JR checks in from Port Arthur (Texas) Memorial High School.  The 5-foot-11, 170-pound standout holds offers from Baylor, Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas to name a few.  Over 25 schools have extended a verbal offer to the speed cornerback. 

My Take

Texas has six verbal commitments as the May evaluation period comes to an end.  Kobe Boyce is the only defensive back on board at this time.  The 6-foot-, 165-pound corner checks in from Lake Dallas (Texas) Texas fans can expect to see three to four defensive backs on National Signing Day.  Kary Vincent, Jr. is at the very top of the priority list.  Long thought to be a Texas A&M lean, the Longhorns have put themselves in an excellent position with a recent unofficial visit made by Vincent.  He would make a great addition to the Texas 2017 recruiting class.  It will be curious to see how many unofficial trips Vincent makes to Texas over the next 2 ½ months. Actions always speak louder than words on the recruiting trail.

Scout.com Take

Vincent Jr. is a dynamic athlete with playmaking ability from his cornerback spot or in the return game. Sudden athleticism in both short-area burst and agility, as well as top-end speed. Turns and runs with receivers well. Great acceleration from a dead stop. Also possesses coveted trait of accelerating even more while already in flight. Excellent closing speed aided by an ability to anticipate the ball. Dangerous in the return game because of aforementioned athletic traits and sudden cutback ability. Will need to build bulk and strength to prepare for next level, but a promising, high-major-caliber cornerback talent with plenty of potential. - Gabe Brooks
