Before the start of his junior season, Clarence Vaughn transferred from Colorado Springs, Colorado, to Fairfax, Virginia. He enrolled at Robinson High School, where he played for the varsity football squad last season.
His first year for the Rams was not especially flashy, as the physically talented Vaughn was busy learning the new offense.
“Clarence transferred to us right around the beginning of football season,” said Robinson head coach Mark Bendorf. “He played split end for us, but basically spent the year learning the offense. Last year was a transition year for him, which is why his statistics weren’t much.”
At 6-2, 190 pounds, Vaughn runs a consistent 4.5 in the 40. He has the size and speed college scouts are looking for, however he just needed to show it. This summer, he has visited several camps, including Wake Forest, Virginia, and will visit Ohio State in hopes of impressing coaches.
His plan has worked so far, as he has earned an official scholarship offer from Wake Forest. Vaughn was offered following a dynamic performance during the Demon Deacons camp, where he posted a 4.39 in the 40 yard dash.
“He’s doing all of the right things this summer to get his name out there,” said Bendorf. “He has been training extremely hard with us and has improved dramatically since last season.”
According to Bendorf, both Virginia and Virginia Tech are “certainly aware of him.” He has been receiving a lot of mail, though no offers have been extended from either school. A big senior season could change things, and with the departure of Notre Dame signee Chase Anastasio, Vaughn will have his chance.
“He’s had a great off-season,” said Bendorf. “He needs to follow it up with a productive senior season. I hope he can.”
