Tyler Vaughns, a wide receiver out of La Puente, California, is considered a hard commit for USC. Vaughns is a 4-star recruit looking to make a big impact this fall. With the current 2016 class and current USC wide receivers in mind, Vaughns will need to impress the coaches quickly if he's looking to start.
Weighing in at 180 pounds and a height of 6'2", Vaughns is on the slimmer slide for a wide receiver. What he lacks in weight, he makes up for in hand-eye coordination and speed. Vaughns ran the 20-yard shuttle in 4.2 seconds, putting him near the top of his class for quickness and mobility.
Earlier this month, Vaughns played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Vaughns caught 3 passes and 1 touchdown for a total of 44 yards. These stats put the recruit at the top of his class, with the largest number of targets during the game for the west coast team.
Tyler Vaughns has a high football IQ, something that he'll need in the upcoming years to adjust to the new coaching changes he's about to face. The Bishop Amat receiver has the ability to get open under any amount of pressure and can really make an impact from any point on the field.
Analysts consistently point out Vaughns' excellent hands. When watching his recruitment videos and Army All-American highlights, it's easy to see why. No matter the matchup, it seems that every time a ball is thrown to Vaughns, he will catch it.
It will be exciting to see the impact Tyler Vaughns makes this fall at USC. He should be in the mix for a starting spot later on in the season, if not the first couple of games.
