Just a week or so ago we reported that Rashad Vaughn had nearly become a North Carolina Tar Heel. Since then, he held off on his decision and the Tar Heels picked up another five-star commitment with Theo Pinson.
With Pinson’s decision, many see Vaughn no longer wanting to come to Chapel Hill, but that may not be the case…nobody knows. The effects of Pinson’s commitment have not been seen yet with Vaughn and until they do, nobody will know where Vaughn’s thinking may actually be.
Before Pinson committed, Vaughn was highly predicted by many to commit to North Carolina. That may be different now for the obvious circumstances as already mentioned.
So far Vaughn has picked up offers from North Carolina, Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, Minnesota, Arizona State, Baylor, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida State, Iowa, Maryland, Memphis, Miami, Nebraska, Oregon State, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin.
The other favorites other than North Carolina are Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, and Minnesota.
The last team to visit with Vaughn was Baylor. His last visit with North Carolina was in March when Coach Roy Williams visited with Vaughn and his family.
Though several players in the 2014 recruiting class have committed thus far, it’s rather early on still for this class to be making their final decision. Vaughn said he held off from committing when he was in Chapel Hill for the Duke Blue Devils game because he wanted to discuss things with his family.
Based on that, his commitment could be a while away before he makes it.
Vaughn is known for his ability to score the basket and finished the play. He’s an athletic shooter and has a great deal of abilities that make him a unique talent. He’s also got some great transition talents that fit the North Carolina mold perfectly.
