OL Bond set to announce decision

Three-star offensive tackle Travis Bond has enjoyed the recruiting process up to this point but he feels he is ready to put an end to it.

The 6-foot-7, 330-pound tackle from Windsor (N.C.) Bertie narrowed his list down to Michigan, North Carolina, NC State and East Carolina. Then he took official visits to each of those schools, the most recent being to North Carolina over the weekend.

Now that he has returned home from Chapel Hill, Bond feels like he is ready to announce his decision. His mind is already made up. Now it's just a matter of going public with his choice.

"Oh, the (UNC) visit went great," Bond said not long after it ended. "I'll be making my announcement sometime tomorrow. I'd say I planned it over the weekend. I was going to do it after the recruiting process but I feel like I'm ready.

"I had an outstanding time with the coaches. They told me how I can make their recruiting class better. I think it's ranked the number five class in the country right now and they said I can make it better."

North Carolina's class is currently ranked No. 6 in the nation by Rivals.com. Bond said his choice will be either UNC, Michigan, ECU or NC State.

Among the other prospects in Chapel Hill over the weekend were five-star defensive end Donte Moss and four-star defensive tackle Jared McAdoo, both of whom are committed to the Tar Heels.

"You'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out tomorrow," Bond concluded.
