Today in Minneapolis, MN Roy Williams saw a pair of junior 5-stars square off, SF Rashad Vaughn and PG Tyus Jones, in the Timberwolves Shootout.
Vaughn (Robbinsdale Cooper HS, New Hope, MN), who doesn't hold a UNC offer, finished with 35 points & 7 rebounds in a 80-70 loss to Apple Valley HS (Apple Valley, MN). Jones, who has an offer from the Tar Heels finished with 18 in the win. This was Jones' first game back since injuring his back on December 18th.
Vaughn said as of late he's been hearing more frequently from Carolina. Asked Vaughn tonight if he was able to speak to Roy after the game, and he said he couldn't because Roy had a plane to catch. Vaughn expects to hear from him on the phone either tonight or tomorrow.
He wouldn't give me any favorites and said just about every school is recruiting him evenly, including Kentucky, Maryland, Texas, UNC, Louisville and Minnesota. He hopes to take a visit to Chapel Hill soon, but nothing is planned.
Hopefully, I can reach him again after he speaks with Roy to see if an offer is on the horizon.
Edit: Vaughn also said he liked playing against Jones, who he called smart and a true floor general

Thanks Anna! Heard good things about Vaughn!
Hoping to land Berry and Vaughn as our back court. Throw in a wing like Jackson and a quality big and things are looking very good for the 2014 cycle.
