LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The UNLV men's basketball team on Thursday announced it has signed two promising players during the first week of the spring signing period.

The program has received a letter of intent from Rashad Vaughn and a financial aid agreement from Cody Doolin.

Vaughn, a 6'6" tall, 210-pound guard from Minnesota, will be a freshman in the fall. He comes to UNVL from Henderson's wildly successful Findlay College Prep.

A five-star prospect, Vaughan is rated as the No. 7 overall player in the county by Rivals, No. 19 overall and No. 4 at his position by ESPN.

With the Pilots, Vaughan averaged 19.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.2 steals per game. Findlay Prep reached the semifinals of the National High School Championship this year and posted a 31-5 record.

"Rashad is a great addition to our team. He is an explosive scorer and is terrific making plays for others. Rashad is a high-level competitor and has a tremendous work ethic," UNLV head coach Dave Rice said.

Doolin, who stands 6'2" and weighs in at 170 pounds, hails from Austin, TX, and is transferring in from San Francisco, where he will graduate in May with a bachelor's degree in finance.

Doolin started in all 103 games he played for the University of San Francisco, scoring more than 1,000 points. He was also good for 451 assists.

"We are excited for Cody to join our team. He is a true point guard and natural leader. He is a very capable scorer but is at his best leading and making plays for others. He brings tremendous experience and a commitment to team," Rice said.
