Time will tell, but I'm more optimistic about the squad than I've been in years.

I am equally excited about Vaughn, partly because he is a Virginia kid. Our most successful teams have had Virginia kids on the roster that made a big contribution. Just to name a few, Bowdler, Bassett, Hodge, Sesssoms. Blain Taylor's best teams had Finney and James to name a couple. I think it helps recruiting and our state exposure when we have Players raised in the Commonwealth. The local papers are always wanting to keep up with their players.

I liked that Vaughn was a POY. Granted at a lower level HS like Travis Fields, but I think when you get a chance to sign a POY you have take it. His weight, and lack of other D1 offers are the only things that make me nervous. Im sure JJ knows what he's doing with this guy though. I definitely agree that its good to keep kids in state if they are high enough quality to help us out.

Welcome aboard Mr. Reece!

Switched high schools from Vashon to East Saint Louis. Not sure why.

Sounds like Vashon had a lot of transfers into the program.

Monarx, why would you call Norcom a lower level school? That's where the Finney's played too.

I was under the impression Norcom was a single A school vs. AA or AAA. Thats what I meant by "lower level". I think those designations are determined by the size of the student body. The general thinking is the competition isn't as strong in A vs AAA because there are fewer kids in the system. Therefore its harder to tell the skill level of a player because he isn't playing against as strong a level of competition. Perhaps I am wrong? Certainly doesn't mean the kid can't be good. In fact the point of my post was considering he was the POY ODU can't afford not to take a chance on the guy. But its possible that is why he was not recruited by many D1 schools.

Edit: Upon further research, Norcom is at the Triple A level. So I was wrong on that. Vaughn was the single A POY I believe.
