Three-star athlete LaMarcus Bond out of Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County didn't get to make it up to Charlottesville for their win over No. 4 Florida State, but the 5-foot-8, 174-pounder with 4.4-second speed did watch the game on television and was impressed.
"That was a big win for Virginia and I really felt like they played together as a team and it was good."
Bond continues to favor five schools including Clemson, Miami, North Carolina State, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

"I really like the facilities, academic opportunities and of course the football at those programs," he said. "I plan to take all of the visits after the season."
Despite naming his top five, there is one other school that is still on the outside looking in for the No. 9 player in North Carolina.
"I'm still considering Auburn as well and that's it," he said. "I'd say Auburn is on the outside, but I like that they are really coming along as a team and they've contacted me a lot more recently. They talk to me about how they want me to play wide receiver, about their program and stuff like that. I still believe there is a chance Auburn could land one of my official visits too."
Bond has performed exceptionally for Hertford County helping them win their last two games to get to 4-5.

Of those 22 touchdowns, five are off punt returns, two off kick returns, one on an interception and one receiving. I've seen a big improvement in my game since last year as I'm much more of a leader now. I also think over the last few weeks all the players on the team have been able to play together which has helped us win."Here to view this Link.
