Robert Vaughn who is a 6-0, 195 pound, three-star prospect is currently ranked as the No. 46 rated safety prospect in the nation. Vaughn admitted that UConn has been the team to beat since the May evaluation period.
"They have been the number one team for me since May. I just feel so much more comfortable with the staff there. My mom is real happy because now she can come see me play and I can come home whenever I need to. Distance was never really a big factor for during the process."
Vaughn was blown away by his official visit last weekend which was ultimately the deciding factor.
"I like everything on my official, so why pass it up? I didn't want to lose that opportunity so I had to handle my business."
UConn recruited Vaughn as a free safety and he feels there's an opportunity for playing time.
"They have a senior starter returning, and two backups one is a junior and they said the other may be moved to linebacker."
