An emerging talent out west, 2016 Corona (Calif.) Centennial three-star cornerback Camryn Bynum tallied three interceptions and 66 tackles his junior season.
According to Bynum, listed at 6-foot-0, 170-pounds, there’s a reason for that production in the defensive backfield.
“The off-season before my junior season I really focused on my footwork and that really helped me my junior year,” Bynum said. “I played all corner and special teams.”
Bynum currently holds two scholarship offers heading into a very important spring and summer, one from Cal Poly and another from San Jose State.
Previously taking an unofficial visit to California for a junior day, Bynum plans to check out the Bears again come May.
Recently Bynum decided to reach out to another school he hopes has interest in recruiting him, that being the University of Michigan.
“Coach (Jay) Harbaugh followed me on twitter and I thanked him and asked him what I could do to get further recruited by Michigan cause it’s my dream school,” Bynum said. “He said they’d watch my film and evaluate it further.”
“I’m trying to leave California and Michigan is advancing athletically and academically and it seems like a great fit for me,” added Bynum.
Asked whether or not Michigan could be one of his stops this summer on the camp circuit, Bynum essentially cited the movie ‘Field of Dreams,’ noting if the Wolverines invite him, he will come to Ann Arbor.
“I’d most likely go for sure,” he said. “If they wanted me to come I’d go.”
Still with plenty of time for other college coaches to see his tape, Bynum plans on making a decision far down the road.
“I’m going to wait it out and see all of the opportunities I can get so I’ll wait until signing day,” Bynum said.
“(I want to find) the school that has my major which is medicine, like a sports medicine person,” Bynum added. “And I want a school that makes me feel at home and being able to play freshman year early once I get there.”
