Indiana Recruiting: 2015 ATH Ray Buford recaps visit

See what three star class of 2015 athlete Ray Buford had to say about his recent visit to Indiana and more.

Last Saturday the Indiana football program didn't just hold their first spring practice of the year, but also played host to a few prospects, including class of 2015 athlete Ray Buford of Southfield, Michigan. "The Indiana trip went real well." Buford told The Crimson Quarry of his time in Bloomington. "The first thing that stood out was how nice the facilities are. It's top notch around there."

Between getting the current Hoosiers ready for the upcoming season, Kevin Wilson and members of the IU coaching staff found time to interact with the 6'1 195 pound standout who was recently named the Overall MVP of the Core 6 Athletes Showcase held in Cincinnati, Ohio.

"I pretty much got to meet the whole staff and spent time with Coach Wilson." Buford said. "He (Wilson) told me they are very interested in me. I spent the majority of the time with Coach Shelby watching meetings, watching drills and just seeing how he coaches the defensive backs. He's very energetic. The wide receiver coach even talked to me and said he's going to let Coach Shelby recruit me but he was going to steal me away when I got there."

Blessed with the skills to play on either side of the ball at the college level, Buford, a three star prospect according to Rivals.com, has landed scholarship offers from Boston College, Eastern Michigan, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan so far during the recruiting process after missing most of his junior campaign at Southfield High due to a knee injury.

Yet to receive an offer from Indiana, the soon to be senior definitely wouldn't take it lightly if one was fortunate enough to come his way. "When I think of IU, the first thing that comes to mind is the high powered offense." Buford said. "A offer would mean a lot because I feel they've identified me as a player that can help the program take the next step."
