Buford Now at Two

National Recruiting Analyst
Posted Jun 17, 2013

Southfield (Mich.) High has a speedy class of 2015 prospect in Ray Buford, who made plays for them as a wide receiver last year, but is now earning offers as a cornerback.

Ohio State broke ground on Ray Buford playing corner and that has lead to the first two offers for the 5'11, 170-pound prospect from Southfield.

"I think I did pretty well for my first time playing corner at a camp," he said of the Buckeyes, "and they said they want to bring me back down on the 21st and get a better look at me, hopefully I can get an offer there."

Toledo offered this week and Eastern Michigan offered before that. He was thrilled to hear the Eagles were putting the first one out.

"It felt very very good. I'm excited and just thankful. They came straight out and said they wanted to offer me a scholarship and they really like me."

On switching from wide receiver to corner, Buford says, "Yeah, I've got to. That's what they want me for."

He now embarks on a camp swing where he hopes to add additional offers.

"The next week I'll be on a bus tour, I know we'll be going to Tennessee, Ohio State, Old Dominion, Norfolk State, schools like that."

Those schools will have to compete with a growing number of schools recruiting Buford.

"Right now, Bowling Green, but they want me at receiver and Ohio State and Michigan wanted me to come down to camp, but I won't be able to make it."
