Vaughan is scheduled to come in for an official visit to the University of Mississippi this weekend and took an unofficial visit to Ole Miss for the LSU game.
We called to
see how his unofficial visit went and to confirm his official visit for this weekend.
following information was revealed during our interview with Cassius Vaughan:
you still alive in the playoffs? "We are out of the playoffs. We lost to
Jackson Central Merry 30-14 in the second round of the playoffs."
were your stats for the game? "I had 8 carries for 102 yards and 6 catches
for 92 yards. I also had 3 tackles and 1 interception at cornerback."
were your stats for the season? "I finished with 3 interceptions and 7 kickoffs
and punts for TD's. I do not know the rest of my stats except for the playoffs.
I had 160 yards rushing in the first game and a 102 yards rushing in the 2nd round.
I also had over 200 yards receiving in those two games."
your last unofficial visit to Ole Miss. "Well, I went down there with my
dad, uncle, and a friend of mine. It was good. I liked it. I always like it down
there. The atmosphere would have been better if they would have won, but it was
Learn anything new? "Well, nothing really. Defensive
wise, they are a good, but their offense needs to step it up. They could not get
past the 20. I guess the offense is coming in with this (recruiting) class. When
I do get there, I just hope I can come in and help on offense and defense. I know
they are going to lean on a lot of recruits to come in and help. It could be pretty
Is that attractive for you; knowing you are going to be counted
on in your first year? "Well, it does, just to play early will be real nice.
If they recruit me to play defensive back it will be nice. But, they are short
at wide receiver, so they might want me there. To be an impact player so early
in the SEC would be kind of nice. Like a dream."
How long has Ole
Miss been talking to you about playing wide receiver? "As far as recruiting
me, they do not know, but Coach Rippon wants me at cornerback (laugh). He said
there was no way he was letting me go (laugh). It does not matter to me. I am
just ready to get into their system. I do not care where I play. I just want to
learn the right techniques to be the best I can be at what ever position they
put me in."
Did you get a chance to talk to any of the recruits at
the Ole Miss/LSU game? "Yes sir, I talked to Duke Calhoun. He is looking
forward to coming down to Ole Miss with me. He thinks it is a good opportunely
for him to come in and play early with Espy, Hill, and Biddle leaving. Duke says
he can come right in and play. I also saw LaDerrick Vaughn before the game. We
talked some. But during the game, he was really into it, so we did not talk much.
But he coming (to Ole Miss) too. We will all be there."
Are you still
coming on your scheduled official visit to Ole Miss this weekend? "Oh yea.
I can not wait. I hear they put on a good show. I am really looking forward to
