While most seniors are gearing up to sign their names on a National Letter of Intent, Deonta Vaughn is looking for a new school to call his future home. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound point guard has backed out of his verbal commitment to the Indiana Hoosiers.
Vaughn committed to Indiana over a year ago but according to his head coach at Harmony Prep in Cincinnati Travis McAvene, both Vaughn and the Hoosiers are parting ways.
"His dad wants him to sign early and take advantage of the offer but I think Indiana wanted him to prove himself academically in the classroom and then sign in the spring," McAvene said. "Deonta just decided that he wanted to see what else is out there."
Indiana recently took a verbal commitment from former Missouri plege Armon Bassett last month. Vaughn will look at all options this season and with a competitive schedule in place for Harmony Prep, he'll have plenty of chances to shine in front of coaches.
