One of the prospects that has intrigued Ole Miss is Vaughn Charlton. He is what you term as a true "sleeper" as he has been stuck in a Wing T offense during his stay at Aven Grove (PA). But, that is about to all change, as they have brought in a new coach and a "wide open" offense.
Vaughn has attended most of the elite combines this Spring with hopes
of getting his name out. The list of combines that Charlton has attended are the
Elite 11 (Atlanta), New Jersey Elite camp, Adidas (N.C. State), and the Elite
combine that took place at Penn State.
Charlton will now take his game
to the college camps. First up for Charlton will be the Ole Miss (Sr) camp that
takes place on Saturday.

The following information
was revealed during our interview with Vaughn Charlton:
your strengths at QB? "My knowledge
of the game. I am calm and cool in the pocket. I can take the hit, so I do not
get rattled. I have good arm strength and pin point accuracy. I can put the ball
where it needs to be."
What most are you working on to take your game
to the next level? "I am lifting weights with the team. When school was still
in session, I was lifting at 4:45 am on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I had Lacrosse
after school was out, but now that is over. I gather my teammates and we practice
on our own, then we go over to my house and break down the film. We are working
hard to have a big year next season."
How long have you been starting
for Aven Grove? "Since my sophomore year. My sophomore year I was honorable
mention (All-League), and my junior year I made All-League."
were your stats? "I was 58 - 78 for 972 yards, 9 TD's and 3 int's. We ran
the Wing T offense, so I kind of got stuck in that situation."
was your team's record during that span? "We were 5-5 both years. This is
only the fifth year we have fielded a football program over here, so I guess that
is OK. We are looking to a lot better this year though. We brought in a new coach
from Villinova. We are going to open it up. We are looking to do wonders this
Which colleges are showing you the most interest? "I am
being heavily recruited by North Carolina State, Virginia, Michigan State, Ole
Miss, Louisville, Rutgers, Villinova, and Princeton."
Any offers yet?
"No, nothing yet. I am kind of a sleeper. Nobody really knows about me yet.
That is why I have gone to so many combines. I needed to get my name out."
do you feel like is closest to offering you? "That would probably be North Carolina State, but all of the coaches have not seen much film on me because we
ran the Wing T. They all want me to come to their camps so they can see what I
Where do you plan to camp? "I am definitely going to Ole
Miss on Saturday. I am going to try and get to Louisville for their camp. I had
plans on going to NC State, Virginia, and possibly Michigan State."
schools are now at the top of your list? "NC State, North Carolina, Virginia,
Michigan State, and Ole Miss."
What do you know about Ole Miss? "Not
too much, to be honest. I know Eli came out of there. I know they are moving to
a pro style offense. The NC State coach (Noel Mazzone) came to Ole Miss. The other
coach (Ed Orgeron) came from USC. Other than that, that is about all I know."
Have any coaches come by your practices to evaluate you? "North Carolina,
NC State, Virginia, Ole Miss, N' Western, and Villinova have been by."
is keeping in contact with you by way of phone? "The same schools communicate
with me the most."
