The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Vincent is rated as a four-star recruit, the No. 17 cornerback in the nation and the No. 18 prospect from the state of Texas, according to 247Sports Composite Ratings. Vincent narrowed down to final list down from 32 scholarship offers.
One of the main factors in Vincent’s decision was his relationship with defensive back’s coach Corey Raymond, according to Sonny Shipp of Geux247. Of course as a defensive back, playing for ‘DBU’ was also excited for the Texas prospect.
“The history of the program and always having a chance to win a championship is big, and of course, DBU,” Vincent said. “That’s what it’s all about here, and I want to be a part of that.”
