DE Chris Bonds (6-4 283) of Richland Northeast attended USC's scrimmage Saturday afternoon along with his mother, step-dad and step-brother. "I talked to coach Lawing and I talked to coach Reaves," Bonds said. "They are doing a lot better on execution, in my opinion, than last year. All of the quarterbacks are looking good. A friend of mine, Andrew Power, got in for a couple of reps. He's a real good friend of mine. I met him at camp a couple of years ago. And of course, I watched (former RNE teammates ) Mark (Barnes) and Rodney (Paulk)."
Bonds is set on his five official visits with Notre Dame, Tennessee, Michigan, Alabama and Southern Cal. And he will use an unofficial visit to USC for his close up look there.
Bonds said right now USC, Alabama and Southern Cal are tied for the top spot with him because he's visited each. "I still waiting to see Notre Dame and Michigan," he said before moving forward with his decision.
