Kenneth Bynum - The Campus Was Lovely

Linebacker Kenneth Bynum visited Georgia Tech for the first time over the weekend, and couldn't have liked what he saw any more.

One of the fondest memories of the weekend for the 2012 recruit out of Jacksonville, Florida was getting to attend football practice and monitor the routines of the Yellow Jackets' defense on the field. Needless to say, Bynum envisioned himself fitting into the schemes quite nicely.

"I love their defense," Bynum said. "The linebackers did well – they're very disciplined. I liked their defensive style, even though I couldn't tell a lot about their pass defense because they didn't throw the ball much in practice."

Bynum loved his first visit to campus, saying that he had a chance to see all of the facilities and talk to some of the linebackers who are currently on the squad. Among the linebackers whom Bynum had the chance to speak with, he noted that talking football with Brandon Watts and Steven Sylvester was especially memorable.

But Bynum raved about the entire visit. "From the dorms to the restaurants, the campus was lovely," Bynum said.

He did not have a chance to speak with head coach Paul Johnson, but he did talk to his recruiting coach Mike Sewak, and while he has yet to be offered by the Yellow Jackets, he remains confident that he will receive that offer. And it sounds like Tech wouldn't have to work all that hard to land Bynum, if they do extend an offer his way.

"Georgia Tech would be top-2 in my opinion," Bynum said. He added that the only school currently in contention with GT for his top spot at the moment is the University of South Florida.

Bynum will continue to visit schools that he is interested in attending until he gets a good feel for his future, but he is hoping to wrap up the search sooner rather than later. "I think I'll wait a little while, but not until Signing Day," Bynum said.

So if the Yellow Jackets want to land the junior linebacker from Raines High School, they should make it a point to offer this young man in the coming months, before he makes his decision to play elsewhere.
