Chirico’s Corner With ’18 DT Taron Vincent

Vincent wears #56

6’3 285 lbs. Taron Vincent has experienced a quick jump to his recruiting process, already obtaining offers from top programs such as Ohio State, Maryland, Wisconsin, and N.C. State. Vincent has already caught the attention from programs across the country and will have a large amount of offers to choose from in the near future. The Baltimore, M.D. native has been busy, especially last month taking visits, particularly to Ohio State for the spring game.

After just one season of playing high school football, Vincent has already had a good experience with his recruiting process. “It’s been good. My parents have been telling me to keep focused on high school for now and then focus more on the process later on.” Vincent said. “I would say N.C. State is showing the most interest right now because my brother plays there. I get down there the most often.”

“They were my first offer so they would always be in my top schools.”

Most recently, Vincent made it out to UCLA for a visit. In the past, Vincent went out to watch a couple spring games, including UCLA’s, Ohio State’s and N.C. State’s. Vincent explained his experience at Ohio State as “It was great. I got to spend some one on one time with Coach Johnson. I was able to tour the facilities, see the stadium. The atmosphere was crazy with all the people there, I never saw that many people at a spring game before.”

Vincent received his offer a couple months ago when he was notified from one of his coaches. “I was excited to get an offer from the national champions” Vincent said. On top of that, the Vincent family has had a connection with Coach Johnson for a while now. “When my brother was getting recruited for college, Coach Johnson was one of his primary recruiters, so he has been around for a while now.”

For the summer, Vincent plans to partake in camps at Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Michigan, and Michigan State. As far as a commitment date, he would like to commit either before or at the very end of his junior year. But, before this, Vincent has some plans on improving his game. “I want to improve getting lower out of my stance along with using my hands more.” Vincent said.

Look for the Ohio State to stay close to Vincent throughout these next few years in his recruiting process. He is a big defensive tackle who can get to the ball quickly. It will be exciting to see his development and what the future holds.
