UB Basketball lands its first recruit for next years class.

Xavier Ford, a The 6-foot-8 forward from Colorado who averaged 22 points, eight rebounds and four blocks last year has verbally committed to Buffalo.

Ford is considered one of the front runners for 'Mr Basketball' in Colorado.

Rodney McKissic of the Buffalo news reports that "the 6-foot-8 Ford visited UB the weekend of Sept. 4 and immediately fell in love with the campus and coaching staff."

Ford also had interest from Tulsa, Portland, Northern Colorado, Loyola-Marymount, Northeastern and Loyola-Illinois.

Scout Calls ford "one of the most athletic wings in the region and possesses a rare combination or length and athleticism that allows him to be a force on both ends of the floor. He has a solid jump shot and scores well at all three levels, especially when he attacks the rim with his quick first step."
