He played at Citrus College as a freshman and has transferred to nearby Pasadena City College for this season where he has quickly become a jack-of-all-trades.
40 time: 4.41
As a junior, at Patterson HS in Louisiana, Vaughns was honored as the defensive player of the year in the state. His senior year he broke his collarbone in the fourth game, and still received all-league honors. He went on to Citrus College and transferred to Pasadena CC for more exposure. "Pasadena is known more for putting players into college," Vaughns explains. "I wanted to get a chance to be noticed a little more."
He is getting that chance in a major way. He started out the season as the starting quarterback and was running all over the place. In an effort to stop him, opposing teams began to stack the box and now Vaughns mainly finds himself at wideout. In his first action at the position, against Golden West in a losing effort, Vaughns caught a new PCC single-game record 13 passes for 149 yards. This included touchdown receptions of 28 and 25 yards. He was named the Mission Conference offensive player of the week for his performance.
The talented athlete is on-course to graduate next May and will have three years to play two at his college of choice, beginning next fall. He is being recruited as a corner and has many schools on his plate. "I like Marshall, Mississippi, Washington, Washington State, Oregon, Oregon State, and UCLA. My favorites are Oregon and Oregon State. Oh, I also like San Diego State and LSU. Oregon State, Marshall and UCLA have came by the school."
He has no offers yet. Vaughns speaks on what kind of player a college will be getting in him. "I am a total team player that will do whatever is needed for the team to win. I have great speed."
The Pasadena CC star is undecided on a major.
