Virginia Tech hosted loads of talented recruits for their 30-13 victory over Wake Forest including 2025 three-star WR LeBron Bond out of the 757. His visit went quite well as he shared with us.
"VT was great. I loved the gameday atmosphere, and love the campus and the coaching staff," Bond said.
He told us that a main reason why his visit was great was the "environment" at Virginia Tech. He specifically mentioned "the people around the campus, fans, and students" as reasons why the environment stood out during his visit.
Bond also got to spend some time with the Hokies' coaching staff including recruiting staffer and former 757 coaching great Glenwood Ferebee. He had this to say about his time and conversations with Ferebee.
"It was a good little conversation we had about our season," Bond said.
Of course, it shouldn't be a surprise that Tech wants to talk about what Bond has done so far this season for Maury HS.
Bond told us prior to this past weekend that he had 7 touchdowns and "almost 700 receiving yards" on 25 catches. The 5'9'' slot receiver has proven himself to be a consistent big play threat in high school with production that seems similar to what true freshman slot WR Takye Heath did in high school at Highland Springs HS.
His performance has also helped him build up a solid offer list that includes Virginia Tech, Duke, Maryland, West Virginia, Boston College, Liberty, Old Dominion, Marshall, East Carolina, Temple, and more.
So what would Bond say is the strength and weakness of his game?
"Strength is my speed. Weakness is probably height," Bond said.
So how did this visit impact his recruitment and where the Hokies stand in it?
"I love Virginia Tech. It is definitely on my list of schools I’ll consider going to," Bond said.
As the 2025 wide receiver board continues to take form, keep an eye on 757 standout LeBron Bond as a top slot receiver target for the Hokies.
