LSU corner transferring, dropping down a level

Buried at a position deep in talent, Ronnie Vinson has decided to ply his football wares somewhere other than LSU.

The cornerback’s prep coach confirmed to the New Orleans Times-Picayune that his former player has already begun the process of transferring from the Tigers to Southeastern Louisiana.

“The paperwork is in the formalized process, but he’s been in the process the past couple of weeks,” New Orleans Isidore Newman School coach Nelson Stewart told the paper. “I think for him, it’s the best fit. He doesn’t have to wait, and they have a scheme that he’s comfortable with.”

As Southeastern Louisiana is a Div. 1-AA (FCS) football program, Vinson (pictured, No. 28) will be eligible to play immediately.

In LSU’s run to an SEC championship and a spot in the BcS title game last season, Vinson played in seven of the Tigers’ 14 games. ┬áHe was a four-star recruit in LSU’s 2010 class, and Rivals.com rated him as the No. 4 player at any position in the state of Louisiana.

    is it safe to assume that he’s wearing #28 in the pic?

    Better make sure less is ok with this, otherwise he will start making comments about his manhood. Not a coach who likes being scorned for greener pastures!

    Oversigning is so rampant that two players on the same side of the ball have to share a jersey number.

    Whew, comin off of migraine and to see this. Thank God it’s not Zack or worse yet some of the key folks behind him. Hopefully this young fellow has thought long and hard bout this. It just seems like programs everywhere are losin folks. Wish I could understand some of their reasonin for it but only they know for sure. BrownsTown at least you know of somebody usin your name, last of last month some jerk or jerkette went into the bank and drained me dry usin my acct number. Accordin to the cop who investigated it told me that folks doin that kinda crap don’t care how many IDs they steal as long as they can get what they want. Hope you can confront who the other one is and give em a piece of your mind and set em straight. Back to football as this’ what this site’s all about. Here’s hopin the team that you’re a fan of does you proud this year.
