"I felt very welcomed on my visit," Buford told Scout.com. "They really gave me a good feel of what it would be like on campus."
"The teammates and coaching staff treated my mother and I with great respect and I fell in love with the people there. I feel that coach [Lon] Kruger can bring out the best in me on and off the court."
Buford is a tremendous leaper and overall impressive athlete. He's mobile, runs the floor with ease and is an active rebounder. Offensively he's a capable finisher around the rim and has also developed his catch and shoot jump shot.
Buford is Scout.com's No. 28 power forward in the 2014 recruiting class.
