Desure Buie, a 6-foot 2015 point guard from Wings Academy in New York, will begin taking college visits in August, Wings coach Billy Turnage told SNY.tv.
Turnage said the plan was for Buie to visit Creighton, Seton Hall, Old Dominion and St. Louis.
“He won’t make any visits until after July,” Turnage said.
A teammate of Georgetown-bound big man Jessie Govan at Wings, Buie is ranked the No. 45 point guard in the Class of 2015 by 247Sports.com.
“His upside is tremendous,” Turnage said. “He has an incredible basketball IQ and drive to keep improving on a daily basis.”
