Florida Gators a finalist for Vincent’s commitment

Lately, it seems like everyday a defensive back has either talked about visiting the Florida Gators or has them in their top group of school.

That is the exact case for cornerback Kary Vincent (5-11, 170, Port Arthur, TX Memorial), who plans to announce his decision in the near future.

“I’m going to be committing on July 10th,” Vincent said. “I won’t shut anything down after then because I’ll still be taking some visits to schools. My top schools are Florida, Florida State, TCU, Texas A&M, Auburn and LSU.”

A quick look at Vincent’s top schools shows that the SEC dominates his group and he has a good reason as to why that is.

“I know the SEC to be the best conference in college football,” he said of his love for the SEC. “I think people look at it like that too, so that’s why I want to be a part of the best conference with the best players.”

The Florida Gators is one of the teams from the SEC after Vincent and he says one coach is recruiting him hard from Gainesville.

“Florida is recruiting me hard, Coach G [Torrian Gray] is trying to get me up to Florida,” Vincent said of his interest in Florida. “Florida State has Coach [Charles] Kelly and he’s recruiting me hard too. It’s going to be a tough decision.”

Gray, who visited Vincent twice this spring, has sent a very direct message to Vincent about wanting him in the Swamp.

“Coach Gray tells me that he wants me to continue DBU at Florida,” he said of what he likes about Florida. “Vernon Hargreaves left so they’re just trying to continue DBU there at Florida.”

Despite being in his group of schools Vincent has never visited Gainesville, but he says that will change soon.

“I haven’t visited Florida yet but I will visit them in late July,” Vincent said of when he will visit Florida. “I also plan to take all five of my official visits. I haven’t set in stone any official visits yet.”

Vincent already has his commitment date set but he says that he doesn’t quite know who he will pick on that date yet.

“No, I’ve been praying on it, God put it on my heart to end it before the season,” he said when asked if he has a school picked out. “Whatever is on my heart that day is where it’s going to be.”

INSIDERS TAKE: Vincent is a guy that the Florida Gators have recruited this spring but it seems like LSU, A&M or TCU will be the pick. Vincent like he said has planned to visit the Gators so Florida will have a chance at flipping him.
