Vault is getting looks from many other programs though including Maryland, Rutgers, Duke, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Penn State, North Carolina and Stanford.
"Most of them are saying they want me to come out for junior days, they want to get to know me."
The versatile prospect recently attended Rutgers junior day in December, prior to that he made games at Duke and Maryland during the season.
"I like all of them," he said. "Rutgers had nice facilities and Duke's campus was nice. Maryland is good cause it's my hometown, I liked that a lot."
However, Vault claims no favorites.
"I'll give everyone a show," he said. "I want to have strong academics. I want to go into sports medicine since football won't last forever. I want a family; they have to have good people. I would kind of want to stay close to let my parents see me play."
Vault had 188 carries for 1,200-yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior this year.
"I did alright," he said. "Our team didn't have that good of year and I still have to do more to help my team win.
"I think the thing about me are my cuts. My vision is good and I can see holes."
Also a talented track athlete, Vault is ranked first in the county in the 55-meter.
