Vaughns reviews USC 2015 season

Bishop Amat five-star wide receiver Tyler Vaughns is also one of the better cornerbacks in the 2016 class. Bit in addition to playing two positions in football, Vaughns also plays two sports.

In two months, the class of 2015 will be signed sealed and delivered and college football will be looking toward the class of 2016.

La Puente (Calif.) five-star wide receiver Tyler Vaughns will be one of the focal points of the 2016 class for Pac-12 coaching staffs. As of the classes few five-star prospects, he has already made multiple unofficial visits to USC.

Saturday, Vaughns was on hand to watch the Trojans route Notre Dame 49-14. In hindsight, Vaughns views the Trojans 2015 season with optimism for the future. 

“Every time they lost, they always seem to bounce back,” said Vaughns. “I liked how they didn’t get caught up with the last game. they always found a way to bounce back and win the next game.

“Those games they lost, they would come back and blow the next team out. The offense clicks, the defensive is live and they play amazing.

“I thought they would win the game by at least two touchdowns, but I didn’t expect that kind of win.”

Having watched USC several times in person this season, Vaughns expected a Trojans victory Saturday. He also expects USC to sign a talented class of players in February.

Thus, in sizing each college option up, Vaughns will take into account what next year’s roster will look like.

“I understand I’m not just going to come in and start right away,” said Vaughns. “But I want to see how the team stacks up. I want to see how everything plays out before I start making decisions on schools.”

But Vaughns has another decision to make.

Also a tremendous outfielder and shortstop for Bishop Amat, there’s a chance the minor leagues may sway him toward playing baseball after high school.

“Right now, I’m planning on playing football and baseball in college,” said Vaughns. “I’ll have a scholarship for football and I’ll walk on to play baseball.

“But just leaving from high school to the MLB… I don’t know yet. I haven’t had that conversation or thought it through. I haven’t had any communication with any baseball scouts about the minor leagues yet.”

As far as college football is concerned, UCLA, Washington, Texas Tech, Colorado State, and Washington State are his options in addition to USC. However, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound five-star should see his number of scholarships increase in the coming months.

“I’ve got Oregon talking to me, and Alabama has come in recently too,” said Vaughns. “I’m talking to the coaches at Alabama and they’ve basically explained their set up.

“I’ve been watching them play and they’re really good, so we’ll see what happens with them.”
