Lofton To Wait Until Spring

Maysville (KY) Mason senior shooting guard Chris Lofton is going to be around a while. Lofton isn't going to sign until the spring.

Last year's hero in the state championship game does not intend to take part in the fall signing process.

"I'm waiting till the spring right now," Lofton said. "I've been playing football right now."

Lofton, a wide receiver on the gridiron, said he might be able to pull double-duty in college. "I could but right now, I'm just going to play basketball."

And the reason for waiting until the spring? "I'm looking to see if other schools get involved."

The 6-1 Lofton said that Miami-OH, Kentucky and Cincinnati are still showing interest. Apparently, Miami has offered him a scholarship.

"I want to go to a school that really wants me. I want a chance to play right away as a freshman with a good concept of team basketball and a winning tradition."

The guard said that he would love to see Notre Dame get involved in his recruitment. "They came down to visit but they hadn't talked to me in a while."
