Pac 10 school offers CSM wideout

Last season, San Mateo came within two points of winning the California State Championship. A lot of that had to do with an explosive offense that averaged over 44 points per game and WR Rahsaan Vaughn (6-2, 190) was a contributor to their cause. spoke with the gifted wideout and he updated us on things including which Pac 10 school has already extended an offer...

"Arizona offered me recently," Vaughn told "I was talking to one of the coaches there and he told me they are sending me an offer in the mail.

"He said they like how explosive I am and my size and my hands. It was pretty cool getting that first offer."

As a freshman last season, Vaughn put up solid numbers -- 17 receptions for 238 yards and three touchdowns -- in eight games.

"I can do it all at receiver," Vaughn said. "If you need me to go outside, I can do that. I have 4.37 speed so I can get down the field, but last year was really the first time I was a 'down the field' receiver.

"Usually, I was the guy who ran the intermediate routes and made plays with the ball in my hands."

As a senior at Washington High School in Fremont, California, Vaughn was a playmaker, but his grades appeared ready to derail his promising football career.

"I didn't take things as seriously as I needed to," Vaughn admitted. "The guy I train with went to CSM and when I talked to the coaches here, I knew it was the right place for me.

"They always get guys moved on to the next level and they have a great program here so I knew it was a good fit for me."

Aside from his offer from Arizona, Indiana has also shown some interest in what Vaughn has to offer on the football.

"A lot of schools have been talking to my coaches about me, but I don't know any specific ones," Vaughn said. "My coaches just said I should keep working hard so I can show them what I can do."

Vaughn said he's on pace to get his AA degree in May of 2011 and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
