Arizona still in the hunt for Vaughn

Rashad Vaughn is one of the top players in 2014. Read on to see what Findlay assistant coach Pete Kaffey has to say about Vaughn's recruitment, transition to Findlay, and more.

Shooting guard Rashad Vaughn has been one of the best players in the 2014 class for years and has recently cut his long list to seven, which includes Arizona.

It makes sense that Vaughn is so highly recruited, as Rob Harrington of writes, "More than his visible talent or current production, Vaughn boasts a great deal of promise due to style.

"To take that next step, Vaughn simply needs to become a more consistent and efficient weapon. But clearly, it's difficult to overstate the value of a player who can rise to the occasion the way he has repeatedly over the past year."

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound five-star also has made a big transition this high school off-season by transferring from Robbinsdale (Minn.) Cooper H.S. to national powerhouse Findlay Prep.

Findlay Prep assistant coach and Vaughn's mentor, Pete Kaffey, says that they are working on getting a visit together with Arizona in the near future.

"Rashad and I have talked about it and that he wants to visit and we are working on getting a visit together soon," Kaffey said.

When asked about the seven other schools recruiting him, which includes the likes of Kansas, UNLV, North Carolina, and Baylor, Kaffey says that each is recruiting Vaughn hard.

"Everyone is coming at him hard," Kaffey said. "He has no leaders at this point in time because he is just really focusing on the upcoming season."

Kaffey says that Vaughn's decision date will be in the spring and he is simply waiting for the right moment.

"There is no timeline," Kaffey said. "When it just feels right, he is going to make a commitment."
