Examining the Recruitment of Former St. Bonaventure Guard Kyle Lofton
Former Saint Bonaventure guard Kyle Lofton is one of the most highly-coveted guards in the transfer portal, and it’s time to take a dive into his recruitment.
Lofton played four seasons in Olean, averaging 14+ points per game in three of them. This year, he averaged 12.8 points and 5.9 assists per game this season for the Bonnies. Lofton is a career 30.3% shooter from three-point range, and has also dished out at least 5.5 assists per game in three separate seasons. So who is looking to add the talented, experienced veteran point man?
He has reportedly drawn interest from Purdue, Arizona, Rutgers, Florida, Texas Tech, Tennessee, Seton Hall, and Kansas State. Over the weekend, Lofton took a trip down to Gainesville for an official visit with Bonnies teammate Osun Osunniyi.
St. Bonaventure transfers Kyle Lofton and Osun Osunniyi are currently on an official visit at Florida.

The two are reportedly looking to team up at their next program and play heavy minutes at the one and the five. Will the Gators win this recruiting battle? Will Lofton and Osunniyi team up?
