Rashad Vaughn decided with his family to attend a prep school and not finish his senior year at Robbinsdale Cooper High School, Vaughn’s mentor, Pete Kaffey, told the Pioneer Press on Monday. Vaughn, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound shooting guard, is ranked No. 6 in his class nationally by Rivals.com and No. 11 by ESPN.com. He was one of the “Big Three” prospects in Minnesota’s 2014 class that also includes Apple Valley’s Tyus Jones and DeLaSalle’s Reid Travis. “The kid has to move on and do what’s best for him,” said Kaffey, a former Cooper assistant coach. “The decision has been made for a while, but we decided to wait because there were a lot of things going on. The kid is a gym rat, so he needs access to the gym as much as he can. He also needed to play against better competition.”
