Buford to begin visits this week

October 22, 2013 

6-8 Dante Buford of Jacksonville, FL is set to take two of his three official visits this week. He will go to Miami Wednesday thru Friday and from there he will fly to Oklahoma for the weekend. "He's got his scores so he's qualified and we're just waiting to see what he does," Buford's coach Rex Morgan said.

USC coach Frank Martin and his staff are staying in regular contact with Buford who will make his official visit to USC October 31st. "They're looking forward to having him on campus officially after he sees the other two and I think he'll have a better feel for it," said Morgan who is expecting USC coaches to visit next week. Buford, who is a Simpsonville native, has been unofficially to USC.

Morgan says these visits will be the final determining factor for Buford. "I think it's the same. It doesn't surprise me that he knows and is just keeping it close to the vest right now. I think he'll have a clear picture since he visits. Once you get back you've got to sort out what's real and what's fiction."

Buford is expected to announce his decision soon after his visit to USC.
