Former Penn State guard Taran Buie is still going through the process of taking visits in order to determine his next visit.

Jim Hart, Buie’s former AAU coach with the Albany City Rocks, said Thursday that the 6-foot-2 Buie visited Hofstra recently and the Pride could end up being his destination.

“Mo Cassara recruited him while he was at Boston College, and he likes him,” Hart said. “They’re doing good things there. Jamal Coombs-McDaniel just transferred there, Charles Jenkins just got drafted.”

Buie, an Albany, N.Y., native, averaged 5.8 points during his freshman season with the Nittany Lions.

Towson and Colorado are also interested in picking up Buie on the transfer market, but there’s a sleeper option in the mix -- Hutchinson Community College (Kan.).

“He’s visiting a junior college for some reason,” Hart said. “I guess the idea is that he would spend one year there and then get back to the highest level, maybe a Colorado or an Alabama.”

Hart thinks the best option would be heading to Long Island and playing for the Pride.

“In my opinion, he should go to Hofstra,” he said. “He would have a great three years with them.”
