QB Herb Bynes sticking with five

Scout.com 3-star quarterback Herb Bynes told Inside The Ville that he recently adjusted his short list of favorites

QB Herb Bynes sticking with five As the Florida State Playoffs near, Scout.com 3-star quarterback Herb Bynes has helped his Anderson High School team to a 6-2 record. Through eight games the mobile 6-foot-3, 215-pound Bynes has thrown for over 1,100 yards and 5 touchdowns, while also rushing for an additional 170 yards and 3 scores.

Bynes believes that his approach to the game, as well as his impressive athletic ability, will help him during his first year in college.

"I'm an impact type player because I can go in and do anything that the coaches need me to do," he said.

As the high school season beings to wind down, with fewer teams playing each weekend, Bynes has also decided to start to wind down his recruiting process.

"I have a top five that I'm sticking with," Bynes told Inside The Ville. "Louisville, Nebraska, Middle Tennessee, Auburn and Central Florida. They are all about even."

While one program hasn't surfaced as a clear leader, Bynes did speak highly of the Cardinal program.

"I really like their offense and how they pass the ball a lot," he said. "I also like that running back Michael Bush that they have. I talk to coach Whitt a lot and I've talked to the quarterback coach, coach Brohm."

While it's likely that the five schools that he lists will receive official visits, Bynes says that he has yet to schedule any.

"I haven't done that yet, but I have talked with some of the coaches about going on one," he said.

Once he does begin taking his official trips, Bynes has a list of things that he'll be looking for while visiting the various campuses.

"First, I want to see what the atmosphere is like there," he explained. "I want to meet the people there and see what it's like. I want to make sure they have good academics for what I want to study and I want to make sure that all the coaches care about me."
