Bynum To Set Up At Least Three Trips

Andrew Bynum is busy setting up official visits, but have the Blue Devils called to secure their interest? <i>TheInsiders.com</i>'s Mike Sullivan has the scoop.

Andrew Bynum, a 6-foot-11 center from St. Joe's High School in New Jersey, is likely to have three official visits scheduled by the time the week concludes, according to his brother, Corey.

"He should have trips to Georgia Tech and Connecticut set up later this week," Corey said. "He already has a visit to North Carolina set up."

The UNC visit is slated for the weekend of October 15th. "Georgia, Georgetown, and Rutgers are also being considered," Corey said.

When asked if Duke had made a call into the Bynum house, Andrew's big brother (age wise) said, "Not yet. Coach K makes the first phone call. And he is away right now."

Corey said his brother is likely to consider the Blue Devils if Duke becomes serious about Andrew. So far there has been no offer from the Duke basketball program for Bynum. The other schools in the recruiting process have offered Andrew.

Bynum, just 16-years-old, is an overpowering center who is just beginning to touch on polishing his individual skills. Andrew was a key member of the New Jersey All Stars AAU program this past summer. The New Jersey All Stars won the Showcase in the Disney World complex at the Wide World of Sports in late July.

In the final, Andrew sustained a sprained ankle. "It's coming along great," Corey said. "He should be ready to play soon. He dunked a few on me today."
