LSU senior defensive back Kary Vincent announced on Monday that he is choosing to “opt out” of the 2020 season to begin preparations for the NFL Draft.

Playing in all 15 games in 2019, Vincent recorded 48 total tackles and four interceptions in LSU’s route to the title.

“With thoughtful prayer and lengthy discussions with my family, we feel that it is in my best interest to opt out of my final year at LSU and begin training for the NFL Combine,” Vincent wrote in a Twitter statement. “I have worked long and hard for the opportunity to play in the NFL. I’m humbled and excited about attacking this next challenge with humility, integrity, and dignity. I will always be Forever LSU.”  

He joins defensive end Neil Farrell as the second Tiger to opt out of the 2020 season. Luckily, LSU has depth in the secondary to withstand this blow.
