HEAD COACH NEVIL BARR
"First of all, Vince is a great leader. Now, he's a big guy with tons of athleticism, but Vince is really just one heck of a leader.
"Vince is tremendously strong and moves very quick for a guy his size. He's a big-time player, a guy I think can play anywhere in the nation.
"Vince always plays well, just doesn't have bad games. When coaches would come through, I'd tell them to pick any (game tape) they wanted, he'd be consistently good in all of them."
