WEST PALM BEACH – Vincent Redmond is a hot commodity right now.
The 2018 defensive back has been proving himself in a multitude of ways, as evidenced by the stellar junior season he had at Lake Worth. He finished his breakout campaign with 56 tackles (2 TFL), 6 interceptions, 6 pass breakups, and 1 sack in 9 games played for the Trojans.
But Redmond plans to elevate his game even more, as he made the bold decision to transfer from Lake Worth to Palm Beach Lakes in the offseason. He will be on a suddenly potent Rams team for his senior year with the likes of 2018 defensive back and four-star recruit Gurvan Hall, 2018 athlete Teja Young (transfer from Royal Palm Beach), 2018 defensive back Jakari Steling (transfer from Delray American Heritage) and 2018 defensive back Nick Hollis (transfer from Palm Beach Central).
“It was a good move for me,” Redmond said. “I feel like I’m home now. I’m with my peers and coaching staff I grew up with. It was the right move.”
To top it off, Redmond is gaining some valuable experience right now with the Palm Beach Fire 7-on-7 team with his new teammates.
His most recent outing came in last week’s Florida Football Fire Showcase, where he competed against some of South Florida’s best underclassmen affiliated with the venerable offseason organization.
The event took place on Jan. 21 at North Miami Stadium in North Miami.
“My man-on-man coverage is getting better,” Redmond said. “I just need to work on my footwork, jamming ability, as speed a little more.”
Redmond (5-11, 185) has no offers right now, but hopes it will all change in his favor soon.
He’ll have plenty of opportunities to potentially improve his recruiting stock, starting with today’s scrimmage against the Treasure Coast Elite in Port St. Lucie.
From there, Redmond will likely compete in the Palm Beach Open (Feb. 5; Seminole Palms Park in Royal Palm Beach) and the Pylon 7-on-7 Tournament (Feb. 11-12; Northeast Regional Park in Orlando).
We’ll be following Redmond’s progress from now until the day he signs with a college in 2018.
