Four-star cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. announced on Twitter Thursday that he will make his college decision Sunday at 7 p.m. CT. The Port Arthur Memorial product originally set his decision date for July 10th, but pushed it back in order to film a video announcement.

Vincent’s list is a lengthy 32 teams, including Alabama, Texas, and LSU, which is widely considered as the favorite. The son of the Texas A&M legend of the same name is rated as the 17th-ranked corner in the country and the 18th best player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Texas has been always in the mix, but never a favorite throughout Vincent's recruitment. The Longhorns were the standout corner's 13th offer, but as Vincent's list expanded to over 30 teams, Texas became lost on the outside looking in. Vincent is the most highly-touted target on Strong's radar for corner, but he is undersized at only 5'11, 155 pounds.

For Charlie Strong, a 2017 corner is a need for the class, but not an urgent or crucial one. Texas has already landed rising three-star prospect Kobe Boyce, and they will only be losing Sheroid Evans to graduation next year.

Though not every couch can be painted burnt orange, there has been some frustration for DBU’s recruiting in the past few weeks. After missing out on four-star Baylor defectee Parrish Cobb, Texas also unexpectedly missed the top six cut for five-star safety Jeffery Okudah.

Vincent would be a massive get for a 2017 class that currently only includes six commits. However, though he may rebel against his Aggie father and become a Longhorn, the odds aren’t great for Strong right now.

Still, wins heal all recruiting misses, and Texas can prove its worth as a powerhouse landing spot starting September 4th under the lights at Darrel K. Royal Stadium.
