Vaughn stated, “I feel terrible knowing that I am the only player to receive Division 1 offers as I feel that my team deserves better as they are great at what they do.”

Many players put in just as much work in as Vaughn in order to succeed. They’re not receiving the correct exposure that they truly deserve in order to prosper.

Vaughn also stated, “Going to camps exposed me to many college coaches such as the University of Oregon, University of Los Angeles, University of Nebraska, and the University of Kansas.”

As a junior, it’s accomplishment to receive just one offer from a Division 1 school or any school for that matter he has 8 and counting many are top 32 schools in the nation as well as some of the top producers for NFL prospects.

“Oregon has by far the best training facilities and training equipment to make me a better player in every way, with that being said they are my top offer at the moment,” said Vaughn.
