Three-star Nashville (Tenn.) Pearl-Cohn running back KeShawn Vaughn turned in another standout camp performance on Sunday. Now he's hoping his offer list starts to match trophy case.
Vaughn, who has offers from California, East Carolina and a few other programs, is expecting plenty of visitors in the coming weeks.
"Illinois is waiting to see me in person before they offer," Vaugn said. "They said they're planning on coming down soon to see me. They think I would fit in pretty well to what they're doing on offense. They just want to make sure my size is legit before they offer."
Fellow Big 10 school Purdue has already recently starting showing interest and have quickly jumped into the race.
"Purdue is just talking right now but they're heavily involved," Vaughn said. "I just started talking to them recently but they're talking a lot about how bad they want me but I don't know what they're going to do in terms of offering or coming to see me."
While he's shown what he can do on the camp circuit this spring, Vaughn will likely have to duplicate his efforts in front of college staffs this summer. He said he plans to camp close to home before he ventures out throughout the rest of the country.
"Memphis wants me to come to their camp and so does Cincinnati," Vaughn said. "I want to make sure I can go to all the schools in the area, like Vanderbilt and Tennessee, before I go far out. I want to chose a school that's close, but not too close so I want to look at all of them."
