WR Blake Bone Profile
Woodruff High School wide receiver Blake Bone has already caught the attention of the in-state schools. Both Clemson and South Carolina have offered.
"A lot of coaches keep telling me there's a lot of upside. I just want to go out here and catch some balls, try to get my team back to state," Bone recently told CUTigers.
This season, he's aiming for 80-90 catches and 1,500 yards.
As far as the team goes, when you're playing for Woodruff, there's only one destination in mind, and that's a trip to the state title game.
"Especially moving back up to 3-A, I mean, we've got better competition than 2-A. Our region is actually better than our [old] 2-A region so we definitely have a run for our money," Bone said.
On the recruiting trail, he's hearing North Carolina, N.C. State and Duke, in addition to the in-state schools.
Bone hasn't made any plans for fall visits.
"Our football team, we work non-stop, 24/7. I haven't taken a day off to go see a college campus," he said. "I definitely need to go see Carolina. I've seen Clemson, but to see what Carolina's working with. They've been telling me to come down."
There is no list of favorites.
"I'm just going to go to a college that runs the spread and throws the ball a lot. Both [Clemson and South Carolina] do that, so there's no favorite or anything," Bone said.
A decision could be made as early as the beginning of his senior season.
"I'm not going to rush it, because I don't want to make a mistake or a decision that I'm not ready to make yet," he said.
In 13 games as a sophomore, Bone caught 62 passes for 1,009 yards and nine touchdowns.
