Lamonte Bearden, a four-star recruit, made a verbal commitment on Tuesday. He committed to Buffalo on Tuesday.

Bobby Hurley and assistant Nate Oats prioritized four-star recruit Lamonte Bearden throughout the summer.

On Tuesday that hard work yielded a commitment. Bearden, a 6-foot-1 point guard, gave Hurley and Buffalo a verbal pledge following a workout at Germantown (Wisc.) High.

"I just like everything about them," Bearden told "I went to visit them last week. I love everything about it. I love the coaching staff, the A.D. and the whole team."

Bearden also considered Oregon State, San Francisco and St. Louis.

"Even though I didn't visit some of these other schools, I just knew that Buffalo was the best school for me," Bearden said.

"They use a lot of ball screens and I like a lot of ball screens," he added. "I think I fit their program real well."

Hurley had a lot success as a point and Bearden thinks he is the perfect coach to help him develop.

"That was one of the reason I committed," Bearden said. "He was a good point guard. I think he can help me develop into a better point guard."

Bearden is ranked as the No. 22 overall point guard in the 2014 class.
