Buffalo struck again on the recruiting trail with a commitment from another quality 2014 guard. Tuesday night they gained a commitment from Germantown (WI) point guard Lamonte Bearden.
The guard puts his stamp on the game in a variety of ways. Bearden is great with the rock in his hands. He makes good decisions for himself and others. Bearden hits tough shots including contested jumpers.
We caught up with the senior who talked about why they were his choice.
“The coaching staff is amazing. Those guys are everything I expected.”
How did the actual verbal go down on Tuesday?
“I think they kind of already knew, but I told them that they will have a winning program and I want to be a part of that when I graduate.”
He talked about what impressed him with their staff.
“They are the best staff I have ever met. They aren’t guys who just talk about it. They are the real deal.”
During his prep career Bearden ran on the circuit with the Wisconsin Swing.
