Cal watches Vaughn

John Calipari was in Massachusetts watching 5-star Rashad Vaughn Monday.

On the eve of Kentucky's home game against SEC foe Texas A&M, UK coaches John Calipari and Orlando Antigua were in Springfield, Mass. at the HoopHall Classic watching the Wildcats' top remaining target in Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep 5-star Rashad Vaughn Monday.

The 6-foot-5 guard, who had missed the last six games with a sore knee, bounced back to score 12 points in a 73-43 win over North Carolina signee Theo Pinson and Wesleyan Christian (N.C.).

Ranked as the No. 12 overall prospect and No. 3 shooting guard in the country by the 247Sports Composite, which takes into account rankings across multiple outlets, Vaughn is the second-highest rated uncommitted prospect and likely Kentucky's top priority left on the board.

Vaughn will take an official visit to North Carolina Feb. 14. Having already visited Iowa State (Nov. 17) and UNLV (Nov. 25), Vaughn is likely to take his final official visit to Kentucky later this season.

Kentucky was in hot pursuit of Vaughn last spring before shifting its focus to UK signee Devin Booker and others over the summer.

Vaughn originally eliminated Kentucky when he cut his list to seven in September, but later added the Wildcats to his final five in December.

His Crystal Ball is currently split among four teams: Iowa State (42 percent), UNLV (29 percent), Kentucky (21 percent) and North Carolina (6 percent).
