We have made it to July and SEC Football Media Days are coming soon. 

The University of Alabama looks to return to the College Football Playoff in the fall and win a national championship. Nick Saban has several talented players, but which ones will emerge as the most impactful?

The staff at Touchdown Alabama Magazine will spotlight numerous players for the upcoming season.

After looking at Kobe Prentice, we continue with wide receivers and Isaiah Bond is next.

Isaiah Bond

Classification: Sophomore

Hometown: Buford, Ga.

Position: Wide Receiver

Size: 5-11/182 pounds

2022 stats: 17 catches, 220 receiving yards, one touchdown (13 games, one start)

Strengths: Athleticism, route-running, can separate from defenders, explosive speed, good hands, vertical depth threat 

Weaknesses: Needs to continue growing in the playbook

Summary

Isaiah Bond showed as a freshman that he’s a deep-threat wide receiver.

He can frustrate cornerbacks and safeties with his electric speed from the slot or on the outside. The 5-foot-11, 182-pounder became an incredible playmaker at Buford (Ga.) High School and brought that mentality to Alabama. He can separate off the line of scrimmage, possesses good routes, has capable hands, and his athleticism is second to none. Bond finished his first year with 17 catches for 220 receiving yards, including a 6-yard touchdown catch in the Allstate Sugar Bowl against Kansas State.

He has been training with Tavon Austin, Tyreek Hill, and Jaylen Waddle this summer. Bond is prepared to break out as one of the best young weapons in college football in the fall. He gives the Crimson Tide versatility as a marquee returner on special teams.

A former four-star, Bond is a receiver that fans are looking forward to seeing him accomplish a lot.
