Per William Gunter, a national basketball recruiting analyst for 247Sports, Rashard Vaughn is leaning towards Richard Pitino and the Gophers.

Vaughn, a five-star recruit from New Hope, Minn., had played for the Robbinsdale Cooper High School team but elected to play his senior year at a prep school outside of Minnesota.
Considered the seventh best recruit in the Class of 2014, Vaughn has offers from more than 25 schools including Louisville, North Carolina and Syracuse.
If the Gophers are able to land Vaughn, it would be a game-changer for Pitino’s Gophers on the court and on the recruiting trail.
