Safety Robert Vaughn out of North Attelboro, Mass. picked up three new offers in the last couple of weeks.
The 6-foot-0, 183-pounder picked up scholarships from Wisconsin, Connecticut and Temple.
"I like Connecticut a lot because one of my friend's, Darren Nixon, is on the team," he said. "I like the new facilities they'll have there when I'm a freshman. The coaches remind me a lot of my high school coaches now and Connecticut is so close and the program is up-and-coming."
How will Vaughn's relationship with Nixon affect his recruiting?
"It definitely won't affect anything," he said. "He's like a second brother to me, I work out with him every day and he tells me to just know that I want to go to the school 100% before I decide."
What does Vaughn think of the other two schools that offered?
"I don't know a lot about Temple at all. I've just heard about them, but it's nice to have the offer. One thing that's interesting is that the Temple coach sees me playing either side of the ball, but I'd prefer to play safety and that's what Connecticut and Wisconsin are recruiting me as," he said. "I've been talking to coach White every week and everything I hear about Wisconsin is unbelievable. I'd definitely put them and Connecticut in my top five right now. I'm looking forward to getting out there for an official."
Vaughn also just finished camp at Boston College and still plans to camp at Syracuse and maybe LSU.
"It would change a lot if Boston College and Syracuse offered because they would be ahead of Temple and then it would be a hard decision with Wisconsin and UConn," he stated. "I like the 100% graduation rate at Boston College. My brother runs track at Syracuse and I've been there a lot. I've got a good relationship with the coaches and we have family ties there."
Vaughn isn't planning to make a decision anytime soon as he is looking to commit either during or after the season.
Two schools that Vaughn is still hoping to hear from are Ohio State and Tennessee.
"I know Roland James, the former All-American at Tennessee pretty well," he said. "He's making calls to Tennessee and Ohio State for me. I'd love to play at either of those schools."
