At a press conference held at his high school, class of 2016 four-star wide receiver Tyler Vaughns committed to USC on Wednesday. The Trojans were considered his leader for a long time and he finally pulled the trigger on his decision.
“(Trojans wide receivers) coach Tee (Martin) is a great man, great coach,” Vaughns said (via Ryan Bartow of 247 Sports). “He develops his receivers. (I like) how he carries himself on the field. How he keeps his receivers together.”
Vaughns, who is 6’3”, 175-pounds from La Puente, California (Bishop Amat High School) is viewed as the No. 33 recruit in the country and the second best receiver in the class of 2016 by 247 Sports. He caught 83 passes for 1,183 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior and is set to join an outstanding class.
Vaughns chose the Trojans over interest from UCLA, Washington, Oregon, Alabama, Georgia, Nebraska and many others. He will now join fellow high school teammate and four-star athlete Trevon Sidney in Sarkisian’s 2016 recruiting class, which is now ranked as the 5th best in country according to 247 Sports and includes 16 commitments.
