"It was pretty good," said Buford, on his visit. "I have always loved Michigan. I got a pretty good feel for it. I looked around at other things, of course, I looked at the Big House and saw all the facilities. I felt I had a lot of love from the coaches and they really liked me. I got a sense of family up there.
"I really talked with coach (Curt) Mallory a lot and coach (Chris) Singletary. And they were just talking about how good I can be and the sky is the limit right now for me basically. So keep working, and they will eventually get back to me."
At-6-foot-1, 175-pounds, Buford has offers from Toledo and Eastern Michigan at the moment. While the Wolverines' have yet to extend an offer his direction, an offer from Michigan would go a long way in his recruitment.
"It would mean a lot," Buford said. "It would be a great honor. I would smile forever if I got that offer. But I wouldn't make the decision right off the bat."
"Tennessee was pretty good," Buford recalled. "I like their facilities a lot. They said they really don't offer guys like me up north unless we are pretty big globally. I'm not that big yet. But I had a pretty good showing out there.
"I like Maryland a lot. They are on the come up right now. So hopefully I am looking out for them and getting a offer.
"Old Dominion is a very good school. Their division AA right now, but will be coming up to Conference USA in two years. But they are pretty good for only being a football program for like four years."
In the meantime, Buford said his position coach will play a hug role in his recruitment moving forward.
"As a corner, I will be looking at who is the coach first of all. I just want to see their pedigree, and if they played corner, and how many guys they put in the league."
