6-7 Dante Buford, the Simpsonville native who attends Arlington Country Day School in Jacksonville, FL, announced a commitment to Oklahoma Thursday morning. Buford picked the Sooners over USC. He had also considered Miami.
USC coach Frank Martin and his staff had made Buford a priority recruit for the 2014 class and made several visits to his school. Buford made two visits to USC this fall, one unofficially for a football game and an official visit last weekend.
Buford's decision leaves the Gamecocks with two commitments for the November signing period.
