Rashad Vaughn, the top shooting guard in the nation, has set three officials.
The 6-foot-5 Vaughn from Findlay Prep will trip to North Carolina Sept. 27, to Baylor Oct. 18 and to Iowa State Nov. 17, his mentor, Pete Kaffey, told SNY.tv.
Vaughn’s parents will also have home visits in Minnesota with Baylor (Monday), Kansas (Wednesday) and North Carolina (Saturday). Kansas coach Bill Self will also meet with Vaughn himself Friday in Las Vegas after the meeting with his folks.
Kaffey said several schools, including Iowa State, UNLV, Minnesota and Baylor, had coaches watching Vaughn Monday at Findlay Prep.
In July, Vaughn cut his list to Baylor, Iowa State, Kentucky, North Carolina, Connecticut, Kansas, UNLV, Arizona, Georgetown, UCLA and Minnesota in no particular order.
