Jaylen Bond on Board

6'7" forward Jaylen Bond out of the Philadelphia area committed to Pitt's basketball program. His coach thinks he's a perfect fit for the school:
"He's a big body who can run the floor, he's very powerful in transition and very powerful around the basket," said Plymouth Whitemarsh head coach Jim Donofrio. "And he's a young kid. He doesn't turn 17 until May. His strength is already pretty impressive for a high school kid. He is a power player. A lot of people have said that he looks and plays like a Pitt kid."
Bond is a big get for the school and is an ESPNU 100 recruit, rated #69 overall. He joins fellow Philadelphia-area recruit, John Johnson (must be an Insider to view)

He is listed as a four-star recruit from Rivals and a three-star from Scout. His offers included West Virginia, Villanova, Temple, St. Joe's, and Penn State and he also had drawn some interest from UCONN, Florida, Florida State, and Memphis according to the two sites.

He led his high school team, Plymouth Whitemarsh, to the PIAA AAAA state championship as a junior and, well, loves his medal.

The kid can get up. Way up. He averaged 18 ppg and 7 rpg as a junior last year.

Definitely a good get for the university.
