Robert Vaughn Commits to UConn

North Attleboro, Mass., safety Robert Vaughn ended the suspense last night after his in-home visit with Connecticut assistant coach Lyndon Johnson. After his official to Connecticut last weekend, Vaughn was tempted to pull the trigger, but he thought about a possible visit to Iowa before he'd announce. Last night, he had a change of heart.

"When Coach Johnson was leaving I told him my recruiting stops when you walk out the door. I shook his hand and told him I wanted to commit." Vaughn said. "Coach Parker from Iowa came by the school yesterday and offered me a scholarship."

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."
