OL Travis Bond (6-7 320) of Winsor, NC says he hopes to get in contact with USC coaches to schedule an official to Columbia. He has already taken visits to Michigan and NC State and has two more scheduled. Bond goes to East Carolina on January 10th and to North Carolina a week later. He says his top five are USC, Michigan, UNC, NC State, and East Carolina.
Bond is looking for a school that he can become a part of for the rest of his life. "I want to go where the coaches will make me feel welcomed...not just as a player, but even after I graduate," said Bonds. He says it has been a while since the Gamecocks have contacted him. "They still send me mailers but I haven't heard from them lately," he said. Bonds says he would like to hear from USC and wants to visit. Bonds does not have a leader and says he will make a decision in late January after he has completed his official visits.
