Buford had 'Wild' U-M/ND Game Experience

STORY: Southfield (Mich.) 2015 DB Ray Buford discusses his recent visit to Michigan for Under The Lights II.

Southfield (Mich.) 2015 defensive back Ray Buford made his way to Ann Arbor on Saturday night for Michigan's 41-30 victory over Notre Dame -- and came away quite impressed with his game day experience.

"It was just a very wild moment," Buford said. "Because it was the first time I ever experienced night game at the Big House. So it was a nice experience."

During his visit, Buford said he had a chance to talk with the Michigan coaching staff. While the conversation wasn't long – the talk was positive.

"I got to talk with Coach Singletary before the game," Buford said. "But it really wasn't much, just a little bit of small talk. He was just asking me how my season was going and things. He was telling me he was watching me."

At 6-foot, 176-pounds, a Michigan offer could be in the cards for Buford, but it's definitely not a certainty. However, if he's going to get one, he said he'll have to earn it.

"If I perform like I think I should and I can – hopefully I get an offer in the future," Buford said. "As far as Michigan going there, that's always been a dream school. But sometimes it's a lot of politics in that and you have to see how you would line up on the depth chart and all that."

Currently, Buford has offers from Eastern Michigan, Ohio, Toledo, Western Michigan and is hearing considerable interest from Michigan, Indiana and Vanderbilt.

"I'm hearing from Indiana a whole lot – almost like every day," Buford said. "I recently just talked to the Vanderbilt defensive backs coach on Saturday and hopefully I'll have a visit soon up there."

Buford noted that possible visits to WMU and Indiana are planned this season.

In the meantime, Buford said he's focused on having a successful junior campaign.

"Well, just working harder every day in practice. Just working on everything I'm weak in. Just trying to get better each and every day."
