Seagears had scholarship offers from West Virginia, Cincinnati, DePaul, Seton Hall and Arizona were all involved with Seagears.

"It's a great fit," Bond said. "Coach Rice is going to build a program around him and him as the PG. The pieces that they have coming in and the style of play [were a factor]. Coach Rice sold it to him and made him feel very comfortable."

"The other schools didn't do anything wrong, but coach Rice just did everything right," he added.

A 6-foot-2, 175-pound lead guard, Seagears is rated as a three-star prospect and checks in at No. 19 on the 2011 point guard list.
