Recruiting the state of Texas is a top priority for new Colorado Head Football Coach Mike MacIntyre and his CU coaching staff.
One Texas athlete that currently has an offer and interest in the Buff Football program is Austin McNeil's defender Zach Vaughan
BuffPlayBook.com recently caught up with Vaughan to get his thoughts and an update on his recruiting process.
Vaughan made a trip to Boulder early in March and came away impressed with the CU Coaches and campus.
"I really like Colorado a lot," Vaughan said. "I was there the first week of March, their coaching staff have really gone out of their way to make me feel very welcome there."
"I loved the campus, its so beautiful," Vaughan noted. "It's only 10 minutes away from the mountains. Campus life is great and the weather was perfect while we were there."
Vaughan is also impressed with the Buffs new head coach and his coaching staff.
"Coach Mac is great to me," Vaughan said. "I talk to him almost once a week, I really think he is going to turn the Colorado program around, I'm pretty excited what's to come for their football program."
According to Vaughan, he is being recruited to play defensive end for the Buffs. He appears to be impressed with his recruiting coach Troy Walters and his position coach former NFL Defensive End Jim Jeffcoat.
"I'm building a solid relationship with Coach Walters and Coach Jeffcoat," Vaughan said. "Coach Jeffcoat was a great player in the NFL, he appears to be a great coach. Coach Walters is really easy to talk to."
"I will be going to several camps this summer," Vaughan said. "I probably won't camp at Colorado, their coaching staff is already sold on my talents. I may go to a few camps to get to know some other coaching staffs."
While Vaughan was hesitant to name an early favorite, he is high on the Buffs.
"It's too soon to name a favorite," Vaughan said. "But I really do like what Colorado brings to the table."
Vaughan plans on making his decision before the end of the summer.
