DeAndre Bynum is a 6-4, 185 pound shooting guard from White Station in Memphis, Tennessee. Bynum is on the Illini radar from the Class of 2007.
Bynum is a student of the game. "I watch the Final Four games because Illinois is interested in me. I like them; they have one of the best coaches in the NCAA today, and he's only in his second year at Illinois," Bynum said.
"Illinois has great guard play. They get out and run and I love it, I love it. Their guards took Louisville's guards right out of the game and that's because they play good defense and have good coaching," Bynum added.
"Illinois and UNC will be a good match-up, but I like Illinois' guards. It should be a great game. Michigan State hung tough with North Carolina for awhile, but at the end they were a little too much."
Even though Bynum is young, recruiting can never start too soon. That's why this future star guard is getting a good look at all the colleges that interest him. "It definitely helps that Illinois is in the Final Four," noted Bynum.
