Vaughn adds offers

Hailing from Minnesota, sometimes Rashad Vaughn doesn't get all the national attention he deserves, but this spring he proved to be one of the best in the 2014 class.

In the class of 2014 Rashad Vaughn has made some serious noise this spring. The New Hope (Minn.) Robbinsdale Cooper product is one of the better athletes in the class. However Vaughn is more than just an athlete, he is a highly skilled player who has high-major teams tracking his every move.

Running with Net Gain Sports on the AAU circuit, Vaughn has had a chance to show off his skills at several big events. He has always been talented, but now he is really beginning to put it together.

"I think my game has improved a lot," said Vaughn. "My shot has improved, my handle is more consistent, and I have gotten better defensively."

Recruiting wise it should be no surprise that some of the top schools in the country have been watching him during the spring and have made offers.

"Baylor, Kansas, Iowa State, Texas, Tennessee, Minnesota, Marquette, Oregon State, Georgetown, and some others, but those are the main ones," said Vaughn.

Growing up in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Vaughn is very familiar with the Golden Gophers. As a native of the state, Vaughn says it is an honor to be recruited by Tubby Smith and his staff.

"It feels good to have an offer from them," said Vaughn. "Growing up in Minnesota I always loved the Gophers and they are the hometown school."

Another school that has been very active recruiting him is Kansas. Vaughn says he has heard quite a bit from the Jayhawks, and likes the program.

"They have said that it is a good school and that I would fit in," Vaughn explained of Kansas. "With them being in the national championship it feels good to be recruited by them."

For now Vaughn is in no hurry to make his decision. However when watching games and talking to coaches, Vaughn does have certain things he pays attention to.

"I just try to have a great relationship with the coaches and make sure I fit in both offensively and defensively with the style each school plays," said Vaughn.

Currently Vaughn is ranked as a three-star prospect, but look for him to make a jump in the next batch of 2014 rankings.
