Rashad Vaughn cements spot among top scorers in '14
Rashad Vaughn boosted his stock in a major way over the past few months on the AAU scene. His play in Las Vegas only solidified his status among the best wings in the class of 2014.
LAS VEGAS – Heading into his sophomore season, Rashad Vaughn was just a name that was beginning to pick up buzz, mainly in the Midwest. Less than a year later, Vaughn is a consensus top-50 prospect in the class of 2014, and has college coaches tracking his every move.
At the Fab 48 in Las Vegas, Vaughn was pitted head-to-head against Robert Hubbs, a star prospect in 2013. Vaughn more than held his own, knocking down at least five 3-pointers in the first half and outscoring Hubbs.
“I just wanted to come out and play,” Vaughn said. “I always want to go at somebody.”
Vaughn, a 6-foot-5 wing from Robbinsdale Cooper (Minn.), is one of the top scorers in the class. He has consistent range on his 3-point shot and is a very solid athlete in the lane. Vaughn also has an effective pull-up game in the mid-range.
His recruitment is wide open right now, but Minnesota, Iowa State, Texas, Syracuse, Tennessee, Baylor, Memphis, Colorado, Maryland and Wisconsin are all in hot pursuit. He might take a trip to Baylor in the near-future.
Vaughn, ranked No. 27 in the class of 2014, doesn’t plan on deciding until his senior year.
