“I made an anxious decision of committing before I went up there,” Vaughns said. “I wish I would have went there before committing. It was tough. I wanted to do it the right way. You’ve got to do what’s best for you. I just didn’t feel like I could be there for four years.”
Decommitting is the bad news; the good news is that Vaughns, a 5-foot-9, 168-pound cornerback who also can play receiver, still has a good handful of offers. He said he picked up a new offer from Iowa on Friday morning, which goes along with offers from Northern Illinois, Colorado State, Northwestern and others.
“They’re doing good things up there,” Vaughns said of Iowa. “It’s a good school. They just started contacting me, so we’ll see what happens.”
Vaughns said he’s being recruited to Iowa by receivers coach Bobby Kennedy. As for a decision, Vaughns said he won’t announce a commitment until he completes his official visits. Vaughns doesn’t have any visits set, but he’s looking to make Northern Illinois and Colorado State definite trips.
The rest, Vaughns said, will play itself out.
“I’m just playing football right now,” Vaughns said. “Whatever comes to me, comes to me. I feel like I’m going to pick up a couple of offers before the season. I’m just going to make sure I take my visits before I make another decision.”
