Dwayne Jarrett, Fred Davis, Early Doucet, Xavier Lee, and Adrian Arrington were all some of the great 6'3 and above wide receivers featured in the US Army All-American game.
One wide receiver that has the potential to be mentioned in that same group a few years from now is Chris Vaughn. While Iowa and Boston College continue to battle for Vaughn's services, he will travel to Los Angeles and South Bend for two more trips.
"I'm still planning on visiting UCLA and Notre Dame, and really don't expect anything to change that," said Vaughn. "I kind of know where I want to go, but I think it would be best for me to take these last two trips. I want to at least consider all my options."
Vaughn had previously completed official trips to Iowa, Boston College, and Michigan State. While the Spartans have taken a backseat, how close is it between Boston College and Iowa?
"I'm still considering both of them heavily and they are the top two. Boston College has been asking for a commitment sooner than later, and wants me to discuss it over with my parents. Iowa told me they will wait on me, but will call me if they get down to their last scholarship for a receiver."
The Hawkeye Slant with Jon Miller
I think that Iowa might take two wide receivers in this class. Adrian Arrington is certainly in the mix for the Hawkeyes right now and he will likely choose between Michigan and Iowa.
Michigan just received a verbal from another receiver, giving them two in this year's recruiting class. They did not take any receivers last year and had three the year before.
Iowa is still in the running for Kelvin Chandler, a Florida WR prep who visited Iowa the weekend of 12/19.
Chandler's decision might come down to Iowa and Pittsburgh.
This is the reason that Iowa is telling Vaughn that they will let him know when they are down to their last available scholarship at receiver. Should Chandler commit before Arrington and should Vaughn want to commit to Iowa as well, I still believe the Hawkeyes will make room for Arrington should he want to commit to Iowa, something that seems more likely now than it has all year.
