The best uncommitted guard in the country will come off the board next week.

Rashad Vaughn, a 6-foot-5 guard from Findlay Prep (Nev.), will announce his college decision on Tuesday.

Vaughn originally tweeted that he was planning to decide on Saturday night, but that is no longer the case.

The Minnesota native is ranked No. 9 in the 247Sports Composite for the class of 2014. He is the No. 3-ranked shooting guard in the class, and the best perimeter player still uncommitted.

Vaughn is one of the best pure scorers in the country, capable of knocking down shots from behind the arc or getting to the basket and finishing. He also has a good pull-up and mid-range game, enabling him to score at all three levels. Vaughn is constantly in attack mode, and also showed at the Hoop Hall Classic that he's a very good on-ball defender when focused and healthy. He is undoubtedly an immediate impact player at the next level.

The finalists on Vaughn's list include Iowa State, UNLV, North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas. However, the two favorites heading down the stretch are Iowa State and UNLV. The Cyclones have had a relationship with him for a very long time, while the Runnin' Rebels have the advantage of proximity to his high school.

“I got relationships with all the coaches, so it's just where I fit in and can get better and play,” Vaughn said last month.

If UNLV were to land him, the Rebels would have three top-25 recruits in the bag, with Vaughn joining shot-blocker Goodluck Okonoboh and five-star forward Dwayne Morgan. On the other side, Vaughn would be the best recruit of head coach Fred Hoiberg's tenure, and could take the Cyclones to another level next season.
