Summer leads to new interest for Vaughn

Rashad Vaughn's play over the course of the spring and summer led to a better ranking and more interest from college programs. Who is involved with the New Hope (Minn.) Robbinsdale Cooper standout?

Rashad Vaughn had quite a spring and summer.

Playing for Marquise Watts and Net Gain Sports, Vaughn managed to show his scoring arsenal at nearly every event he played in. When the dust settled and the summer ended, Vaughn made his way up to No. 16 overall in the 2014 class.

"I think the summer went good," Vaughn said. "We played in a lot of good tournaments and we were winning a lot. So the summer went good. I've been hearing from a lot of colleges, so it went good."

"I think I played pretty good," he added. "I moved up in a lot of rankings and I went to a lot of campus."

To go with an improved ranking, Vaughn also picked up plenty of new college interest.

"It's getting crazy," he said about his recruitment. "It's going good. I'm just really talking to everybody and keeping my options open to everybody."

Vaughn currently has scholarship offers from Maryland, Kansas, Baylor, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisville, Texas, Iowa State and Florida State. Kentucky, North Carolina and Duke are also recruiting him.

"I'm really thinking about narrowing it down probably during the upcoming basketball season," Vaughn said.

While it's early in his recruitment, Vaughn said two schools have established themselves in his recruitment.

"I have a great relationship with Baylor and Syracuse," Vaughn said.

What sticks out about those two?

"Baylor called me and wished me a happy birthday, so that sticks out," he said.

"With [Syracuse] I just have a good relationship with them too," Vaughn added.

Vaughn is regarded as a five-star prospect and the No. 2 overall shooting guard in the 2014 class.
