New York, NY (Future150) -- At first glance, 2015 PG Desure Buie doesn't stand out to the eye. At 5-foot-11, 145 pounds, he doesn't look like a prototypical guard.
That all changes once Buie steps on the floor. The rising Junior is a blur and has fantastic court vision. He plays with a presence that every coach wants from their point guard. Simply put, he is a floor general.
Buie plays for WINGS Academy in the Bronx. The young guard has forged his game playing some of the toughest players in the city such as Terrence Samuel (UConn) and Isaiah Whitehead.
Recently Buie suited up for Team New York in the Nike Tournament of Champions. Being one of the youngest players, Buie didn't get to see the floor for long but still enjoyed the experience.
"It's good, being a young guy and getting selected to play in this, it's a a really good feeling," said Buie.
Now he is focused on getting WINGS ready for another challanging high school campaign. Unfortuently they will be without fellow 2015 standout Mohamed Touray, who transferred to Christ the King (NY). There is no doubting this is Buie's team now.
"My goal is to win it all," he said. "I have to be a leader now, I want this though," he added. Buie has the right mindset, as he is ready to lead his team into yet another grueling PSAL season.
While Buie has yet to really focus on the recruiting process, it hasn't stopped teams from courting the point guard. He holds offers from Seton Hall, Rhode Island, Iona, Fairfield, Manhattan, and UW-Milwaukee, Virginia, Miami, Clemson, Minnesota, and Dayton have begun to show interest as well.
Look for Buie to continue to build up his reputation as one of the best point guards in New York. Playing with the NY Lightning on the EYBL circuit should only help to boost his stock, but for now Buie is just focused on getting better and getting ready for the season.
