LaMarcus Bond is showing why he is one of the most coveted athletes out of the state of North Carolina in the 2006 class. The 5-9, 175-pound star has 22 touchdowns in nine games for Hertford County (Ahoskie, N.C.), scoring in five different ways.
“My season’s going pretty good,” Bond said. He scored 30 touchdowns last season as a junior. “I’m playing all around the field on offense. I’ve scored 13 touchdowns rushing, five on punt returns, two on kick-off returns, one receiving and one interception return. I have six interceptions on defense.”
Bond does it all for Hertford. He plays quarterback, running back, wide receiver on offense and cornerback on defense. Of course, he returns punts and kicks as well. Most schools like him as an athlete, with wide receiver being the likely position on the next level.
Bond continues to be relatively quiet in terms of which schools he’s really eyeing. He’s enjoying his senior season right now and will decide after the season which programs are highest on his list. Right now, Bond says he “probably will” make all five official visits.
”Not yet,” Bond replied when asked if he had set any official visits. “Schools I’m looking at are N.C. State, Virginia Tech, UNC, UVa and Miami. Those aren’t my final five. Those are just the five I picked right now.”
Virginia, led by primary recruiter Anthony Poindexter, calls Bond on a weekly basis. Bond noted that he spoke with Virginia Tech earlier this week as well. Charley Wiles is the primary recruiter from Virginia Tech.
Bond has not taken any unofficial visits recently, but did attend the Virginia Tech/N.C. State game earlier this year.
