'I Had Fun'

Ahoskie (NC) athlete LaMarcus Bond took his first official visit this weekend as the three-star prospect checked out NC State.

"It went great," LaMarcus Bond said. "I had fun there. We went to the banquet, and I got to meet all the players and coaches.

"Levin Neal was my host. He's a good guy and told me about the school."

Prior to leaving, Bond discussed his recruitment and official visit with Wolfpack head coach Chuck Amato.

"I did get to talk with coach Amato," Bond said. "He didn't mention if I would commit. It went well, he was talking about their program and how important academics are there."

Bond, who has offers from NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, East Carolina, Clemson, and North Carolina among others, has set a January 6th visit with East Carolina and plans on scheduling his remaining trips in the near future.

Previously he mentioned that he could have a decision in December. When asked if that is still a possibility, Bond replied, "Yes."

A versatile athlete, Bond is one of the premier prospects in the state of North Carolina. As a senior, he was a dominant force on both sides of the ball as well as on special teams. At cornerback, Bond intercepted nine passes, returning three for touchdowns. On offense, where he plays slotback, he scored 16 rushing and two receiving touchdowns. He also added five punt return touchdowns and two kick return scores.

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
