Taran Buie, a 6-foot-1 junior combo guard from Bishop Maginn (N.Y.), could decide on a school during the spring of his junior year.
According to Jim Hart, Buie’s coach with the Albany City Rocks, “Maryland, Notre Dame and Georgia Tech are the leaders.”
“He loved his recent visits to Notre Dame and Maryland and will visit Georgia Tech soon [potentially in December],” Hart added. “Virginia, Virginia Tech, Syracuse, Rutgers and Texas are still in the mix.
“Most likely no decision until spring as his focus is now on defending his New York State championship with Bishop Maginn.”
