Vaughn Schedules UNC Official Visit

Rashad Vaughn will be taking an official visit to UNC after all. The 2014 shooting guard will be back in Chapel Hill later this month.

"He has set up two visits," said his mentor and assistant coach Pete Kaffey, who has joined Vaughn in the move from New Hope (Minn.) Cooper to Henderson (Nev.) Findlay. "One is September 27th to North Carolina. The other is October 18th to Baylor."

Vaughn and his family will be busy over the next few weeks handling his recruiting process. His parents will conduct in-home visits, while a number of schools are expected to stop by and see him at Findlay.

"He has North Carolina, Baylor, Kansas doing home visits with his parents," Kaffey said Monday. "Then today for workouts Minnesota assistant Kimani Young, the Baylor coaching staff, UNLV staff and Iowa State coaching staff will be at his workout."

Roy Williams and his staff will meet Vaughn's parents this week.

"Carolina is doing it on the 14th," Kaffey said. "Saturday, I think. They'll be with their parents."

The day following the in-home visit in Minnesota, Williams is expected to head to Findlay Prep to meet with Vaughn.

To go with an offer to Vaughn, UNC has recently offered guards Robert Johnson and Dante Exum. Kaffey said UNC is telling Vaughn he's still a top priority.

"What I was told by Coach [Williams] was Rashad has always been their No. 1 priority, but he knows Rashad is a program changer and he has a lot of schools after him," Kaffey said. "They offered him, but they have to do what is best for North Carolina."

"I know Roy Williams contacts Rashad daily," Kaffey said. "Hubert [Davis] and myself talk every other day. Coach made it clear to Rashad they want him."

Vaughn, ranked the No. 13 prospect in the nation by Scout.com, took his first visit to Chapel Hill back in March.

"Obviously the kid has big interest in them," he said. "It's his first visit."

Baylor met with Vaughn's parents this morning. Kansas is expected to do so next. Kentucky is also involved. UNLV is a new school entering his recruitment. He took an unofficial to the Rebel campus last week. According to Kaffey, Vaughn is expected to narrow his list of school to eight within the next week.
