Vince Vance Ready After Redshirt Year

JC offensive tackles possessing both size and athleticism are coveted by four-year programs. Case and point, just look at Georgia Military OT Vince Vance, who goes 6-8, 310 and runs a reported 5.0 forty. Vance has a bunch of early offers. 

"I've got offers from over ten schools, I'm not totally sure the exact total right now though," Vance told  "I have offers from Troy State, Illinois, Michigan State, East Carolina, Kansas, Oklahoma State and LSU right now although LSU might not be offering me anymore, so we'll have to see on that one." Schools are clearly in love with Vance's combination of size, quickness, and strength (320 bench).

Vance prepped at Bradwell Institute in Hinesville, Georgia and received a lot of attention from schools all over the south.

"I had offers from Georgia and Louisville and like seven other schools, but I didn't have the grades at the time," Vance said.  "My math just wasn't very good back then, so I had to go the JC-route.

"I've got a 3.4 GPA now and everything is all good in that respect.  Here at Georgia Military, it's not too complicated.  You do what need to do in the classroom and you will do well.  I've become much more disciplined in the way I do things now and I'm confident I can do well in that area."

Vance said that he was recruited as a defensive end out of high school, but the GMC coaching staff decided to move him to offense.

"I really didn't have a choice, so I had to grow into my position," Vance said with a laugh.  "They moved me over to offense and I redshirted last year so this year will really be my first college season coming up."

"I still kind of have the same mentality I had as a defensive end.  I fire off really well so I'm probably better at run-blocking right now, but I'm working on my pass-blocking and I think I've gotten a lot better at that too."

Vance has one visit set up to Troy State early this fall and expects to set up visits with Oklahoma State, Louisville and LSU as well. 

Vance will have three years to play three whenever he transfers and is expected to graduate in December.  He wants to major in Computer Programming and expects to make a decision sometime during the season.
