LSU defensive back Kary Vincent Jr. will opt out of the 2020 football season.

In a Twitter post, Vincent thanks the fans and said he felt it was best to focus on preparing for the NFL Draft.

Vincent's statement didn't make reference to the Coronavirus, but a handful of high-profiled players have already chosen to pass on the year, citing safety concerns. He is the second LSU player to opt-out joining Neil Farrell Jr.

He is a two-sport athlete, running in track & field, too. Last year he recorded four interceptions and 36 tackles as a junior.
