Rashad Vaughn is starting to plan his official visits. He's recently dropped Louisville from his list, added UCLA, and is still considering the home school, Minnesota. More here...

What he needs is a blue and white uniform...Would love to see him pushing the ball up the court in the Dean Dome.

It'll be interesting to see where Vaughn decides to take his official visits. He seems to be content with unofficial visits for schools he's already familiar with (Iowa State, Minnesots, UNLV, etc.). He's already been to UNC, but hasn't said that he won't take an official visit to Chapel Hill.

Devin Booker seems to be falling off the radar, and interest in Robert Johnson has been picking up. So I guess it's first-come-first-served for UNC's final 2014 wing player.

I could be wrong, but i believe our chances for him were over when his father stopped him from committing to us immediately after his initial visit. many believe that handler/s are involved now, and they have convinced rv that all he should be worried about is where he will get to be a star in his one and done year to showcase himself for a quick exit to the nba.

This recruiting (since the one and done) is so different than it used to be.

Now the players have to evaluate where others go to understand their chances in playing time and shots up for grab.

I love college basketball, but unless the NBA and the NCAA fix this charade of the "one and done" recruiting will be always more about the individuals than the schools, and that is not what this sport (or any other) should be about.
