Full transcript of video interview

GamecockAnthem: Did you have a good time out here?

Travis Bond: Yeah, I had a real good time, getting to see the competition I'll be facing in college and otherwise.

GA: Did you participate in the drills out here? What were some of your times in the forty and the other drills?

TB: I had a 5.28 in the forty. My vertical was 29.5". I was impressed with that, because I'm not used to doing the vertical. Everything else went pretty good.

GA: Alright, and what's your accurate height and weight?

TB: 6'7", 323.

GA: Switching to recruiting, who are your offers right now?

TB: South Carolina, NC State, ECU, and Chapel Hill (UNC).

GA: Who stands out out of that group right now?

TB: I don't really have any standouts right now.

GA: Have you had some coaches by your school recently?

TB: Yes, they come through. South Carolina came through Friday. Michigan is supposed to be coming through Tuesday. And other schools will be coming through from everywhere.

GA: Who is your South Carolina recruiter?

TB: I can't think of his name right now.

GA: What did you think about him?

TB: I like him. He says stuff I like to hear. All the recruiters, they're real cool. I like the coaching staffs from all the schools.

GA: What are their (recruiting) pitches towards you?

TB: All of them said I can start. But I think I'm going to see how things work when I get there.

GA: Have you made any visits out, yet?

TB: Not yet.

GA: Do you have any planned?

TB: Not yet, but I know I'm going to be visiting some of them.

GA: When do you think you'll have your decision by?
