PLAYER PROFILE: Mike Buffalo

HEIGHT: 6-foot-4

WEIGHT: 185 pounds

FORMER HIGH SCHOOL: Wings Academy in Bronx, New York

CURRENT HIGH SCHOOL: South Kent in Connecticut

POSITIONS: Point Guard/Shooting Guard

YEAR: Mike is a current senior, who is considering taking a prep year at South Kent. It's likely another year will serve him well and give him more time to make himself college ready.

CURRENT AAU TEAM: Raising Champions

RAISING CHAMPIONS HEAD COACH: Hasani Stewart

NEW COLLEGE INTERESTS: Manhattan, Buffalo, Monmouth, St. Francis, Detroit, Elon, St. Peter's, Rhode Island, Maine, and Long Island University.

"The Recruitment is basically the same, hopefully in the coming weeks I'm able to take some visits to the schools that are interested in me," Mike said.

"I just got word that I got a Qualifying score on the SATs, now I got to get myself cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse."

STRENGTH: Is a strong guard and mentally tough enough to challenge the bigger bodies near the rim with his drives to the basket.

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: To play the lead guard slot for a division one program, Mike must improve his quickness to offset a smaller guard's agility
