"I fit in very well, and I loved the blueprint Coach [Dave] Rice has in place for me," said Vaughn, a McDonald's All-American and prolific scorer who can get points off the drive or beyond the 3-point arc.
Vaughn becomes the third ESPN 100 prospect to join UNLV's 2014 class. Center Goodluck Okonoboh (Woburn, Mass./Wilbraham & Monson), the nation's No. 23 player, gives the Rebels a superb shot blocker and rebounder, while No. 38 Dwayne Morgan (Baltimore, Md./St. Frances) is an athletic, versatile forward.
"I think with the other recruits, we have a chance to do something special," Vaughn said.
With Vaughn's pledge, there are only four uncommitted players left in the ESPN 100, highlighted by No. 2 overall Myles Turner.
