The son of former NFL Pro Bowl defensive back Troy Vincent is the second Penn State recruit to decommit since the university hired former Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin to replace Bill O'Brien, who was hired as the Houston Texans' head coach this month.
"They had a real close family friend who played there recently. He had a great experience with Coach O'Brien," Russell said. "Troy has been around the program a bunch. I think he just felt comfortable there. His mom saw it and approved. So they were ready to make the decision. I think Penn State was always kind of the leader in his recruitment."
Vincent is ranked a four-star prospect by Rivals.com and entertained offers from Arizona State, Cal, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
