UNC Basketball Recruiting: Rashad Vaughn Meets With Roy Williams, Commitment to Come?

The 2014 class is shaping up to be something special for the North Carolina Tar Heels.  Head coach Roy Williams has already secured two consensus five star prospects in point guard Joel Berry of Florida and guard/forward Justin Jackson of Texas.  Adam Zagoria is reporting that UNC is meeting with another stud in the 2014 class Minnesota’s Rashad Vaughn.

Vaughn’s assistant high school basketball coach Pete Kaffey confirmed the meeting.  Vaughn is a big time prospect who fits the Carolina system like a glove.  UNC currently has three offers out to uncommitted perimeter prospects in the 2014 class with Theo Pinson and Devin Booker also holding offers.  However, Roy has made it clear that he has one spot open and it will likely be first come, first serve as all three players would be welcome additions with Vaughn as the best option.

Vaughn is the #1 shooting guard in the 2014 class according to ESPNs rankings.  Vaughn is a big guard with the potential to play both wing positions at the next level.  He has a nice handle and can get to the rim with ease and use his body to finish in the lane.  A big time shooter putting him along side Jackson would be a dangerous combination of shooters.  UNC currently has the #1 ranked 2014 recruiting class, adding Vaughn would go a long way in keeping it that way for a while.
