The joys and benefits of winning are real. After upsetting the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Texas Longhorns have seen an uptick in recruiting.
The latest piece of recruiting news stoking the fire is that Port Arthur Memorial High School defensive back Kary Vicent Jr., a 4-star prospect who is currently committed to LSU, is planning on using at least one of his official visits to check out the Longhorns.
Try again lol: #ESPN300, Under Armour @AllAmericaGame CB & #LSU commit @__KCINCO tells me he will for sure make OV's to #LSU & #Texas.— Gerry Hamilton (@HamiltonESPN) September 7, 2016
Before making his verbal pledge to LSU, Vincent Jr. was a highly-coveted defensive back Texas was hoping to win over. Now, after a disappointing loss for LSU and a thrilling win for Texas to open the season, it looks like Vincent’s interest in the ‘Horns is back in play.
At the moment, Texas has three defensive backs committed for its 2017 class — Kobe Boyce, Montrell Estell, and Josh Thompson.
