Former Minnesota prep star Rashad Vaughn will play college basketball for the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. He said during his decision Tuesday he wanted to play for a team that would allow him to best showcase his skills.

"Next year I'll be attending UNLV," Vaughn said during his announcement. "I just felt most comfortable in that style of play and I feel I can show the world my talents in that offense."

Vaughn transferred from Robbinsdale Cooper to Findlay Prep near Las Vegas last year. The 6'6" senior had narrowed his list of schools down to UNLV, Iowa State, North Carolina, Kansas and Kentucky.
