There were a handful of very talented underclassmen at the IMG National 7v7 tournament over the weekend. One of the best was BTB wide receiver/safety Tyler Vaughns
. He was sensational on both sides of the ball. Vaughns stars for La Puente (Calif.) Biship Amat.
Vaughns long, lean and very quick. He has exceptional feet and balance. Vaughns has speed and excellent hands. He made a handful of acrobatic catches, whether it was on a fade route, something over the middle or hugging the sideline. This kid has excellent hand-eye coordination and ball skills. He just needs to get bigger.
"I just try and go out there and run good routes and make plays," Vaughns said. "I was catching some stuff today. It's been good out here so far."
Vaughns, 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, has offers from USC, UCLA, Washington State and Colorado State.
Alabama, Tennessee and Oregon are some other schools showing interest," Vaughns said. "I know it's early."
Vaughns said he will camp at both USC and UCLA next month. He remains wide open with the recruiting process. There's no question that he played as well as anyone there that I saw today.
