Humongous offensive tackle Travis Bond out of Windsor (N.C.) Bertie is already racking up offers. The 6-foot-7, 330-pounder is up to four offers according to head coach Tony Hoggard.
"He's been offered by North Carolina, NC State, East Carolina and South Carolina," he said. "Recruiting is kind of new to Travis. I don't think it's really sunk in yet. He hasn't even led about which way he's leaning."
Although there are no early leaders, Bond is in the process of taking visits.
"He went on a junior day to East Carolina and is going to North Carolina and South Carolina coming up soon."
Hoggard discussed his star lineman a bit more.
"He's got a great attitude, a good work ethic and is just a pleasure to coach," he said. "He's very dominant and aggressive. He's a very smart player that is intelligent, but he does have some work to do on his pass blocking schemes.
"As a person, he's loyal and honest. He's very concerned about his academics and has a 3.0 GPA. He is dedicated to his family."
Hoggard mentioned that Bond also participates in track and basketball.
Bond isn't the only prospect at Bertie in 2009, 5-foot-10, 180-pound wide receiver Darius Wesson is beginning to get some looks.
"I know East Carolina, Stanford and North Carolina are showing interest."
What stands out about Wesson?
"He has great hands, runs good routes and definitely is a great athlete in terms of his work ethic," he said. "He is a gamer that turns his game to a different level when the lights come on. He is also a pretty good cornerbacks, kick returner and punter as well.
"He's a well-grounded kid academically with a 2.8 GPA. He's definitely family-oriented and works extremely hard in the weight room."
Wesson hauled in 597-yards receiving as a junior.
