La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat five-star wide receiver Tyler Vaughns has no immediate plans of narrowing down his list of college choose to an arbitrary number, but the state’s No. 1 player at his position could commit soon.
Vaughns said Saturday from the Under The Lights Passing Tournament in
Saugus (Calif.) that a timeframe for a decision is in the works,
although a list of favorites schools is not.
“Yeah, I’m going to do it a week before at my school before the season
starts,“ said Vaughns. “I’m going to get it done there, so I don’t have
to stress about it during the season.
“I don’t have any favorites or a set list, but that’s what I’ll do this
I final list of options may come after Vaughns takes unofficial visits
to Alabama and Georgia with his Body By Tra seven-on-seven team,
although no set plans have been made for those trips.
UCLA and USC were both at Bishop Amat Thursday to watch Vaughns and his
teammate, Trevon Sidney, participate in baseball work outs.
USC has often been characterized has the school to beat for Vaughns
commitment, although he said Saturday that the gap between the Trojans

Vaughns continues to consider USC for several reasons, with nostalgia

says the Trojans set the bar high in his recruitment from the
“They set it high because they were my first offer and I really didn’t
do that well my sophomore season,” said Vaughns. “But they saw talent
and it all just grew from there.”
With a fellow Army All-American prospects as a teammate, the obvious
question that follows is whether Vaughns and Sidney end up at the same
“We’ve joked about it, but we haven’t really talked about it seriously”
When Vaughns makes his decision, he will choose from more than a dozen scholarship offers from the likes of Florida, Arizona State, Washington, Nebraska, Tennessee, Notre Dame and others.
