Alabama CB Names Early Favorites
"I have been receiving a lot of different letters," said Alex Buford. "The main schools who are sending me stuff are Mississippi State, Alabama, Auburn and Rutgers. Mississippi State has been sending me a lot of stuff lately." "I have not been to any Junior Days yet. I was invited to Mississippi State March 1, and Auburn invited me to visit March 8. Rutgers invited me to come up there as well." Buford is seeking the first scholarship offer, and two schools are early favorites. "I really like Alabama and Florida," he said. "I am open, but those are two schools I really like. I like Florida because of all the athletes they have, and I like how they spread the ball around. I like Alabama because of their tradition." Buford recorded 10 interceptions during his junior season. He is aware of his strengths and what he hopes to improve before the senior season. "I would say I am a very physical football player," he said. "I am trying to improve my footwork. I really want to improve everything." Buford stars as a guard for the Thomasville basketball team and will play Central Coosa in the state regional Thursday at Troy University.
