As of a couple of weeks ago, Seattle (Wash.) King’s quarterback Thomas Vincent had been hearing from Air Force pretty regularly. However, it was a home visit that seemed to put his recruitment on the fast track.
“They came by my house a couple of weeks ago,” said Vincent. “After the visit they said that I should come see campus.”
“I flew down last weekend and checked it out,” said Vincent. “On the way home we had to stop in Denver, the coaches called me when I landed and offered a full ride.”
The offer was Vincent’s first from an FBS level program and definitely one that he is excited about.
“It felt great to get the offer,” said Vincent. “I really liked the visit. It was the first time that I have been there, the campus was really nice and we got to watch practice.”
Vincent is a versatile athlete that can run, throw and even play defense. His athleticism is something that would come in useful running the Falcons option attack.
“They want me to come in as a quarterback,” said Vincent. “It’d be fun to play for a team that runs the ball so much with their quarterback.”
Whenever a player considers one of the academies, the required service is something that has to be considered.
“You know, I am indifferent about the service,” said Vincent. “I didn’t know much about it before now, so this next month I need to figure out if I want to go or not.”
While Vincent considers the Air Force offer, it doesn’t mean that other schools will stop calling.
“I have been hearing from some schools, Portland State has been calling,” said Vincent. “Mostly smaller schools.”
