Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County running back LaMarcus Bond has a total of five offers including tenders from the ACC and Big Ten. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder holds offers from Virginia Tech, East Carolina, Duke, Clemson and Michigan State. But who does he favor?
"Clemson's has a real good program with their weight room and class same as Virginia Tech," he said. "Michigan State has a real good academic program, good facilities and a good campus."
Bond also recently made a visit to East Carolina. What did he think of the Pirates?
"It was alright," he said. "They told us about the academics and facilites, but nothing really stuck out about the visit."
Bond plans to take another junior day in April to Virginia Tech as well as the Nike Camp at Virginia Tech too.
Right now he's also hearing from Boston College recently.
Does he have any favorites in the early parts of recruiting?
"I'm really looking at Miami, Virginia Tech and Michigan State," he said. "There's really no reason why they stand out, I just like them."
Besides taking in junior days and camps, Bond is also working out in preparation for next year.
"It is track season right now and it's going good."
