The end of July is always a big time in LSU football’s recruiting calendar, and this year was no exception, as the Tigers used their end-of-summer Elite Camp to reel in several big prospects.
The headliner is four-star cornerback Kary Vincent, who became the Tigers’ 17th commitment for a 2017 class that now ranks No. 4 in the nation. Vincent, a 5-foot-11 corner with a 4.38 40-yard dash time, hails from Port Arthur, Texas, and is the No. 17 corner in his class and the No. 122 prospect overall, per 247Sports.com.
“The history of the program and always having a chance to win a championship is big, and of course, DBU,” Vincent told 247. “That’s what it’s all about here, and I want to be a part of that.”
Here are the other prospects the Tigers landed this weekend:
- Seth Stewart, OT, 2017, 3-star: Stewart is a massive offensive lineman, standing 6-foot-8, 320 pounds. Jeff Grimes loves the former Marshall commit and flipped him this weekend.
- Kardell Thomas, OL, 2019, N/R: Thomas is an athletic tackle, standing 6-foot-4 and over 300 pounds. A little insight: I coached Kardell two summers ago in basketball. He’s incredibly nimble and carries his weight quite well, and he’s a coachable kid who works hard and takes instruction well. He’ll end up in the four to five star range, I’m sure, as he continues to develop.
