Dwayne Morgan Recruiting Rashad Vaughn to UNLV

Dwayne Morgan is working hard to get Rashad Vaughn to join him at UNLV.

The 6-foot-5 Vaughn is set to announce Saturday, and he and Morgan grew close on the AAU circuit.

“Me and Rashad correspond here and there about basketball and on how other’s seasons are going,” the 6-foot-8 Morgan out of Baltimore St. Frances, who committed to UNLV last March, told SNY.tv.

“I tell Rashad that we definitely could use him and that with his scoring ability, Goodluck [Okonoboh’s] defensive presence and my competitive motor along with the pieces at UNLV already, we have the pieces to make some noise next year. But Rashad is good and will have a great college career wherever he goes.”

Sources said Vaughn is expected to choose either UNLV or Iowa State, although he also lists North Carolina, Kansas and Kentucky.

“[Vaughn] and Morgan have been very close since Pangos All-American Camp and communicate very often,” Dwayne Wise, Morgan’s trainer, told SNY.tv. “If I’m a betting man, I say UNLV because they want to be a part of a great class along with Goodluck and win.

“If I’m taking an educated guess, I would say ISU because they recruited him the longest. They also run a pro offense and are having a great year.”

If I was him I would go to UNC. UNC has no shooters and  UNC won't have any natural shooting guards on the roster next year  since this is Leslie McDonald 's last year. Every other school he has listed has shooting gurads that he will have to compete with for playing time. He could get the starting job a UNC from day 1 since he would be the only true shooting guard at UNC.  But if he doesn't come its okay. Berry and Paige in the backcourt sound good to.

Would love to have him at KU but there is no room for him especially since it's most like Selden comes back.

@TravisHines21 What about the penultimate paragraph? That post is confusing me. Maybe I'm a poor reader?

@TravisHines21 I think we need to get @Seann aJohnson12 to make a call and recruit for ISU! I hear her and Vaughn have a good friendship!

@TravisHines21 Right? What is he doing when he bets, uneducated guesses? It's like he's saying he bets UNLV, but thinks ISU would be better?

@AdamZagoria From Morgan's trainer saying he'd pick UNLV if he were a betting man but ISU if he were to make an educated guess.

@TravisHines21 my heart says Iowa State, because how can you *not* love It and Coach Hoiberg. My gut says UNLV. Hope my heart's right.
