stated throughout his recruitment process that there was a chance he could go
both ways. Does he still feel the same way?
"I feel I am going in
as a cornerback. I am more excited about playing defense than offense. I know
we have a lot of players coming in on offense that are going to get it done. I
am more needed at corner because I am in the only corner they signed."

since been moved to wide receiver. This made it very important for Ole Miss to
not miss with their corner selection from the '06 class. If you listen to the

"Cassius is one

for 14 years. We have 24 players currently playing D1 ball right now, and there

to get things done"
Did Vaughan get a chance to speak with Coach Orgeron
at the scrimmage?
"Yes sir. He introduced me to all of the players.
He was strictly business at practice though. He did not have much time to chit

When can the Rebels expect
the All-State selection to arrive on campus?
"I should be there in
June. I am enrolling in June."
