A talented wide receiver for Alabama football is ready to turn it up in spring practice.

Isaiah Bond enters his sophomore season in the fall, but he comes off a freshman campaign where Crimson Tide fans got a glimpse of his speed and playmaking abilities as a vertical threat. He came in at 175 pounds in the 2022 recruiting class, but Bond added seven pounds in the Fourth Quarter Offseason Program, improving to 182 on his 5-foot-11 frame. As a former four-star from Buford (Ga.) High School, he played all 13 games last year for the Tide — including one start. Bond totaled 17 catches for 220 yards and a touchdown. He displayed his speed and deep threat abilities versus Arkansas with 76 receiving yards on two catches — including a 53-yard reception. Bond converted first downs on both plays against the Razorbacks.

He earned his first career touchdown catch in the Allstate Sugar Bowl versus Kansas State. Bond brought in a 6-yard pass from Bryce Young in the end zone. He’s put in work ahead of spring practice and hinted at a big spring for himself on social media. Bond said he put in great work in the Fourth Quarter Program, but he is ready to get spring football started.

We will see if he emerges as the No. 1 option in Alabama’s receiver room.
