Rashad Vaughn Movement Towards Kentucky?


Some late basketball recruiting news tonight as 247 Sports recruiting expert Jerry Meyer has moved Rashad Vaughn to a UK pick in his “Crystal Ball” prognostications. For those of you that don’t know what that is, Meyer and others predict where they think all of the top recruits will go and then lock their predictions in. Meyer had Vaughn going elsewhere, but today he changed that pick to Kentucky. Vaughn is ranked #13 overall in the 247 Composite Rankings and is an elite 5 star Shooting Guard. If Kentucky can get him, it would be a huge late Calipari grab and make the class end up with the one thing it is lacking right now, a great wing.

    Damn, if this plays out and he comes to Lexington it would be a great addition to the class. C’mon Vaughn!

      I concur. C’mon down Rashad. We need you. You won’t regret it. Jmo.

    Looking at his player page. Favorite thing I see? Rated 9/10 defender. Yeah, a good wing defender! Come on down!

      It seems more and more likely we’ll have some of this years guys stick around for another year. If that’s the case, next year could be amazingly deep with the new class coming in. It’ll just be up to Cal to use his bench!

      Dare I say, 40-0?

    We are certainly NOT lacking a wing scorer/2 Guard. Booker is gonna be sooo much better for us than most seem to realize. Vaughn would be an obvious bonus and we certainly need all the athletic scorer types we can get.

    1. Daniel

      yeah Devin Booker’s amazing

    2. Bubba

      Booker is known to be very streaky as a shooter at times, a la James young …. or Brandon Knight kinda….Vaughn is Doron Lamb with Archie Goodwin type athleticism. Vaughn is an extremely gifted scorer, even more than Booker

    Vaughn could play at the 1 2 or 3 position. He’s really versatile and he’s a pure scorer. Oh yeah he can play above the rim and throw it down with force. Dude is a freakish athlete!! This would be the biggest pickup in the 14 class IMO.

  5. Daniel

    Awesome!!… that’s a good sign

  6. Seriously?

    Not sure why James Young is considered to be our best shooter. Aaron Harrison is easily the best shooter on this team. Young has no touch from the free throw line at all. Looks like Shaq trying to brick it in.

    Since when does being a 6’5″ Shooting Guard only get you an 8/10 in the size category?

    Vaughn would be a huge pick up for this class
