Rashad Vaughn is postponing his official visit to Baylor this weekend, Findlay Prep coach Pete Kaffey told SNY.tv.
“He’s still considering Baylor,” Kaffey said. “We’re just looking for another date for a basketball game.”
Kaffey said rumors that Vaughn was injured were also untrue.
“He’s not injured, he just has soreness,” he said. “He’s good.”
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard will now take his first official visit to Iowa State (Nov. 17) before going to UNLV (Nov. 25). He told SNY.tv he is also considering taking officials to Kansas, Arizona and North Carolina. Minnesota is the seventh school on his list, and Vaughn has already been there unofficially.
“I’m going to try to fit it in,” he told SNY.tv of his remaining two officials from USA Basketball in Colorado Springs, Colo. “I don’t know for sure which one I’m going to do, though.”
As for Baylor, Vaughn said he liked them.
“I just got a good relationship with them,” Vaughn said. “They’ve been recruiting me for a long time. I just like how [Coach Scott Drew] lets his guards go and just the style of play they run. And they’re great guys, great coaches, so it’s good.”
