A knee injury late in the season did not derail UNLV guard Rashad Vaughn’s dream of playing in the NBA.

Despite missing nine games with a left knee injury during his freshman season, Vaughn announced on Wednesday that he’s leaving the Runnin’ Rebels and will declare for the NBA draft.

“My experience at UNLV has truly changed my life and helped me become a better player on the floor and a better person off of it,” Vaughn said in a statement. “My teammates became brothers and my coaches became family. Everybody supports each other here and there is nothing like being a Runnin’ Rebel. I will always bleed Scarlet and Gray. Since being a kid, my dream has always been to play in the NBA and I have decided to take that next step.”
