Vaughns could decide after junior year

La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat's Tyler Vaughns is a tremendous two-way athlete with the ability to play multiple positions in college. He's a very talented receiver prospect but can also play corner or safety at the next level. He measured out at 6-1, 160 pounds last March at the SoCal NIKE Camp but looks closer to 6-2 now and is a high level athlete.

Tyler Vaughns has great hands and body control, is a smooth, polished route runner and shows a nice burst down the field. He'll routinely jump over defensive backs on fade routes and is already very good in red zone situations. As he continues to fill out and add more strength, he'll only get better and his upside is tremendous.

On the recruiting front, Vaughns is surprisingly still sitting on four scholarship offers, even though his talent would dictate he should have twice that many.

"Washington State was my last offer," Vaughns said. "I camped with them when they came out here and did a camp at Redlands and they offered me when it was over. I still just have them, USC, UCLA and Colorado State right now but I'm not really worried about recruiting right now.

"I'm just focusing on my team and playing out my junior season. I do think about recruiting and the different schools that are talking to me but since I'm just a junior, I'm not stressing over it right now."

Vaughns said he also camped with USC and said the Trojans are recruiting him the hardest right now.

"I talk to the coaches at USC more than anyone," Vaughns said. "They were my first offer so we have a really good relationship. Washington State is coming on too and is recruiting me hard ever since the camp. I'm also talking with UCLA and Washington but I'm most comfortable with USC.

"Right now, my plan is to play out my junior season and then possibly make a decision a the end of my junior year. I don't think I'll be able to take any more visits this summer but I'll for sure try and get to USC and UCLA for some fall practices. I'll attend a couple of games at both schools as well but not sure if I'll be able to attend any out of state game because I'll be with my team."
