CCC’s Norton-Buford commits to Middle Tennessee State

Berkeley High graduate Aaron Norton-Buford, who played football last season for Contra Costa College, has orally committed to Middle Tennessee State.
“They have a good program and I feel I can excel both on the field and in the classroom,” said Norton-Buford, a 6-foot-4, 218-pound defensive end/outside linebacker.
Norton-Buford said that Middle Tennessee State coaches are looking at him as a defensive end. He was an 2012 all-Bay Valley Conference pick at defensive lineman, as he had 42 total tackles, 3.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for losses and two forced fumbles last season.
“All the coaches, I felt like they were really genuine,” said Norton-Buford about his official visit to Middle Tennessee State in January. “What they were saying was real and coming out of their hearts.”
