Five-star shooting guard Rashad Vaughn is headed to UNLV next season.
Vaughn announced Tuesday night on the CBS Sports Network that he is verbally committed to the Rebels. Vaughn will join Baltimore forward Dwayne Morgan and Massachusetts center Goodluck Okonoboh in one of the nation's top recruiting classes.
The 6-foot-5 Vaughn is ranked seventh nationally by recruiting publication Rivals.com, and 13th by Scout.com.
Vaughn played his first three seasons of prep ball at Robbinsdale Cooper High near Minneapolis. He transferred to Findlay Prep in Las Vegas for his senior year and is averaging 20 points per game.
Iowa State was thought to be UNLV's main competition for Vaughn, along with North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas.
