Five-star shooting guard Rashad Vaughn feels right at home at Iowa State, thanks to many trips to Hilton Coliseum and a strong relationship with Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg and assistant Matt Abdelmassih.
The 2014 Findlay Prep shooting guard took his long-awaited official visit over the weekend, capping the weekend with Iowa State's game against No. 7 Michigan. Vaughn sat behind the basket with future Cyclones Clayton Custer and Jameel McKay and was chatted up by ISU football recruit Allen Lazard.
"It's going good so far, enjoying the atmosphere and just having fun," Vaughn told AllCyclones before the game. "I've been ehre before when it was crazy. I always love the fans and the love."
Vaughn will visit UNLV later in the month and then take another official to UNC. He will take two more, to use more all five, but said Baylor is out of the equation. Vaughn earlier in the year postponed his official visit with the Bears.
There is no timetable for a decision.
"Whenever it feels right," Vaughn said. "I'm not in any rush but whenever it fells right I'll make my commitment."
Iowa State has long been considered a favorite, along with UNVL, to snag the services of Vaughn because of the long-standing relationships it has cultivated with Vaughn.
"They've been recruiting me since ninth grade," Vaughn said.
