Nebraska looking at LB from Florida

Patrick Grant and Moses Jenkins were already at Nebraska a couple of weekends ago and Josh Bynes might have been with them only if there had been room. Not room for official visitors, but room on the flight. Nebraska hasn't stopped pursuing the impressive linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes (Flor.) Boyd H. Anderson and might still bring him in later.

At 6-foot-3 and 230-pounds, Josh Bynes is ready to play immediately in college. The linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes (Flor.) Boyd H. Anderson is leading his team to a solid record thus far.

"We're doing good," Bynes said. "We are 6-2. We have two games left until the playoffs."

"I don't know all of my stats. All I know is that I have three sacks, two fumble recoveries and I don't know anything else. We haven't done those yet."

The season has been busy, but Bynes has been working in some official visits. He just returned from an SEC team and then a Big 10 team the week before.

"I went to Auburn a couple of weekends ago. It was great. Great atmosphere and a great game."

"I took a visit to see Ohio State the week before. The crowds were just about the same. Both places were jumping. Both atmospheres were great."

To date, Bynes hasn't set up any other official visits and another might not come until the end of the season. Bynes and his teammates have their eyes on the prize.

"No, not so far. I won't take any other visits until after the season more than likely. I just want to stay focused on the rest of the games that I have coming up and trying to win a championship."

There are a couple of schools that Bynes is eyeing taking an official visit to. However, nothing is set and anything can change.

"I am considering visiting UCLA and Louisville. After those two we will have to see."

Recently, a couple of players from Boyd H. Anderson went to Nebraska for an official visit. Bynes might have gone had there been room on the plane.

"I don't know a lot about Nebraska. I'll see what happens. I know that Patrick Grant committed."

Bynes is looking for academics first. He knows that in the grand scheme of things that his education comes first.

"I am looking for a good school academically and looking for a school has my major. There is more than just playing football and I need to look at my education. I am looking for a great atmosphere and a place that feels like home."
