Rashad Vaughn of Findlay Prep in Las Vegas is one of our four players in the ESPN.com’s top 100 recruitins in the 2014 class who haven’t committed to a school yet.
Vaughn has narrowed his final five to Kansas, UNLV, Kentucky, Iowa State and North Carolina in no particular order.
Vaughn took an official visit to Iowa State on Nov. 17. Vaughn also visited UNLV and has an official visit set or North Carolina on Feb. 15.
Here’s what one person who has followed Vaughn’s recruiting told me: “Some had a concern about attitude, some thought he wasgood, but sometimes didn’t play as hard as he should. There are ‘”knowledgeable people’ who were adamant that Vaughn is going to UNLV, but that could be because Findlay is a prime recruiting ground for that school. This year they did lose Oubre to Kansas and Victor to Arizona. Other ‘knowledgeable people think it is Iowa State.”
The source also said it is going to get harder for even John Calipari to recruit the best players in the west because of the prowess of Arizona coach Sean Miller. “One person told me that Sean is the Calapari of the West Coast. If Cal is going to successfully recruit on the west coast, he is going to have to ratchet up a bit. Miller is considered by several people to be high on the list of Ivan Rabb — a Kentucky target in the 2015 class — who is ambidextrous, never quits around the basket, has great court awareness and is a good shot blocker.”
