One of the top athletes in Colorado, DaVaughn Thornton of Denver East High School, recently received his third offer. Thornton has informed PrepColorado that San Diego State University has offered. Along with San Diego State, Thornton holds offers from Wyoming and Colorado State.
So far this season, Vaughn is lighting it up as he has already made 31 catches for 592 yards, helping his East squad go 4-3. Along with the current offers, Vaughn reports he is garnering increased attention from Vanderbilt, Texas A&M and Idaho. This past weekend, Vaughn made unofficial visit to Colorado State for the TCU game. During his time in Fort Collins, Thornton met with coaches from the CSU football and basketball programs. The 6-5 Vaughn is one of the top round ballers in Colorado and has been an integral part of the back to back East state championship basketball squad.
Although he has not received offers from the schools, Thornton lists Cal and Washington as football teams he is interested in. With his 6-5 size and very good athleticism, look for Vaughn to gain more offers as the season continues.
