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.
