When the 2007-08 season began, Julian Vaughn was someplace else--about 1,000 miles south of Washington in Tallahassee, FL.

Vaughn, named "Mr. Basketball" in the state of Virginia by the Roanoke Times from his senior year at Oak Hill Academy, averaged 3.0 points and 2.8 rebounds for the Seminoles that season. By the end of his freshman season, Vaughn applied for and received a waiver to transfer to Georgetown.

His first season in the Blue and Gray was as a reserve to a front line that included future NBA picks such as Greg Monroe and Dajuan Summers. Vaughn played sparingly, averaging just 1.8 points per game in 30 of the team's 31 games that season. Vaughn's hard work and perseverance continued to grow, despite injuries and setbacks. By the 2009-10 season, he joined the starting lineup alongside Monroe and picked up his numbers significantly, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds with a team-best 57% from the field. But with Monroe in the spotlight, Vaughn played a secondary role inside.

Vaughn's senior year was a different story. He worked in the off-season with Roy Hibbert to establish his inside moves, and developed a hook shot that served him well. Vaughn led the team in rebounds in 2011-12 with 6.0 a game. With 59 blocks that season and 126 overall, Vaughn quietly joined an exclusive club of Georgetown big men, ranking 13th all time in blocked shots.

Much like Don Reid did a generation earlier, Julian Vaughn's no-nonsense approach to basketball has taken him from the end of the bench to a pro career, and he was a vital contributor to the success enjoyed by the Hoyas over his tenure at Georgetown.
