USC basketball coach Frank Martin was back in Jacksonville last week to check on 6-7 Dante Buford according to Arlington Country Day coach Rex Morgan. And he’s expecting USC back to see Buford October 3rd.
Morgan said Martin has made it clear to him and Buford what he thinks of the player. “He’s their number one guy at that position, so he said it’s imperative they get him,” Morgan said. “He said it’s important to him.”
Morgan said Buford, a native of Simpsonville, still isn’t tipping his hand. “He’s enjoying being recruited a little bit,” the coach said. “I think he likes everybody. Does he want to stay close to home and play in state or go outside?”
Buford is set with three official visits for sure. He will go to Oklahoma October 4th and Miami October 11th. And he is set to visit USC November 1st. He is also scheduled to visit Oklahoma State and Southern Cal but Morgan is not sure he will take those two trips.
Morgan said Martin also remains interested in 6-9 Ledamian Keys though Keys is partial to DePaul right now. Morgan said one of his former assistants is an assistant coach at DePaul and that's a big reason for Key's affection for the Blue Demons.
