Rashad Vaughn tripped to UNLV Tuesday for the Rebels’ 61-59 loss to Illinois.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Minnesota attends high school in Las Vegas at Findlay Prep.
Vaughn is coming off a Nov. 17 official to Iowa State and said he also plans to trip to North Carolina at some point.
“I’m still deciding on the last two,” Vaughn told SNY.tv recently, referring to his other two official visits. “I’ll probably trim it sometime, I don’t know when.”
He is also considering Arizona, Minnesota, Baylor and Kansas.
As for UNLV, Vaughn told the Las Vegas Sun he speaks frequently with coach Dave Rice.
“I’ve been talking to Rice a lot, so nothing really surprising,” he told the paper.
The Sun noted that UNLV has no available scholarships for 2014-15, but that several players have transferred under Rice.
Vaughn is expected to sign in the late period, along with fellow elite recruits Myles Turner, Jonah Bolden and JaQuan Lyle.
“I have no timetable,” Vaughn told the Sun. “Whenever the school feels right.”
