Five-Star WR High On What UW Has To Offer

Bishop Amat (La Puente, Ca.) WR Tyler Vaughns is widely considered the top receiver in the nation and Washington is most-definitely right in the thick of things. caught up with Vaughns during the Las Vegas Pylon 7v7 over the weekend and he updated us on where things stand with him on the recruiting front and the special relationship he's formed with the Husky coaches...

"I'm hoping to fly up there with my parents (this spring or summer), but we don't have any plans set up yet," Vaughns said. "I went up there for a visit when they played Arizona State (October 25th) with (2015 LB) Anthony (Camargo) and I loved it up there.

"They didn't get the win, but you can see how they are building things and their defense was great. They just need a few playmakers on offense and I think those guys are there now, but they were just getting used to the new staff and stuff.

"The school was really impressive. I really liked the facilities and the academic stuff they showed us. They support their players well and they are like a family.

"The coaches are great and I really like what the program there and the school have to offer."

Vaughns currently holds 15 offers including the likes of Arizona State, Florida, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, USC and UCLA as well as Washington.

"Honestly, everything is pretty even right now," Vaughns said. "I'm not really feeling more love from one school than the other ones. I have good relationships with all of the coaches talking to me and I feel like things are sorta just moving along right now."

The coach responsible for staying in contact with Vaughns on the Husky staff is wide receivers coach Brent Pease.

"I talk to him almost every day," Vaughns noted. "I talk more school and we just joke about sports and life. It's a good relationship and a big reason I like Washington."

As far as visits this spring are concerned, Vaughns said he plans to take the SAT this month (March 14th) and then he said he plans to start focusing on which schools he will take a visit to this spring.

Vaughns finished his junior season by leading the Lancers with 83 receptions for 1,183 yards and 12 touchdowns. He is currently ranked as the top receiver in nation and is 15th-ranked player regardless of position. Top Stories
