UNC Basketball Recruiting: Rashad Vaughn to announce on Saturday

One of the top remaining prospects in the 2014 basketball recruiting class is set make the most important decision in his life on Saturday. 2014 shooting guard Rashad Vaughn tweeted early Tuesday afternoon that he will be making his officially announcement on Saturday.

Vaughn, a five-star recruit, would be a huge asset for the Tar Heels who are in dire need of shooters. With the dismissal of PJ Hairston, North Carolina has had to rely on Leslie McDonald, James Michael McAdoo, and Marcus Paige. However, there is potential that all three players will not be on next year’s roster.

McDonald will graduate, many are expecting McAdoo to leave early for the NBA Draft, and while it’s unlikely to happen – Paige could leave early as well.

Vaughn was scheduled to visit Chapel Hill later this month in just a few short weeks, but tells Adam Zagoria he has a great relationship with head coach Roy Williams and his staff. Vaughn had nearly committed to Coach Williams and the Tar Heels last year while on a visit to the campus.

Vaughn is down to just five schools that he is considering: Iowa State, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina, and UNLV.

    PRAYING he picks UNC! That’s all we can do.

  • Brian Glesman

    He is either going to Iowa State or UNLV, he cancelled his visit here next week. Why would you do that if your coming to UNC. Another lost good recruit. We need one that can shoot, this guy was one that could shoot

      Until he announces his decision nobody can say why he canceled his visit. He’s already been here once. He’s got a good relationship with the staff at UNC. He made that clear. His visit to UNC wasn’t going to change his opinion.
