Bond Enjoys Camp Experience

Ahoskie (NC) Hertford County star LaMarcus Bond camped last week at NC State, and he enjoyed his time in Raleigh.

"It was great," LaMarcus Bond told Pride. "I liked the facilities at State and the coaching staff. I ran a 4.47 at their camp, and I won fastest man at the camp.

"They timed us there on grass and in cleats, so I think that was a real good time."

Bond, who already has offers from NC State, Virginia Tech, Clemson, Duke, ECU, Maryland, and Michigan State, had a chance to talk with Wolfpack head coach Chuck Amato.

"I talked to coach Amato before I left the camp," Bond said. "He said they really like me, and he wants me to come there and play for him. I liked that. They are one of my top choices."

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound athlete worked out exclusively at wide receiver at NC State's camp. He mainly played tailback as a junior, but actually prefers the wideout position.

"That's what I'm going to play this year anyways for my high school team so it was good," he said. "I always wanted to be a receiver because I like making plays in the open field."

Bond will attend team camp at Virginia on the 27th of June, and that will conclude his summer camp schedule. At this point, he's not ready to name a leader and wants to focus on his senior season before announcing a decision.

"I'm just looking at all them," he said. "I think I'll have a choice by the football season or sometime right after it is over."

Hertford County, coached by Greg Watford, could be the favorite to win the 3-A state championship as they return several key players.

"We're going to have a good team because we bring back almost everybody," Bond said. "We should win the state championship, and that is our goal."


Bond Quotable: "I just like to make plays. Colleges are recruiting me at wide receiver, and that's where I want to play. I want the ball in my hands."

Coach's Comment: "He can do just about anything. He's very dangerous when he gets the ball in his hands, he catches really well, he's an excellent return guy, but his open field running ability might be the best that I've ever seen. He's very elusive, and has great change of direction." -- Hertford County Head Coach Greg Watford
