Andrew Bynum, a 6-foot-11 center from St. Joe's High School in New Jersey, is likely to have three official visits scheduled by the time the week concludes, according to his brother, Corey.
"He should have trips to Georgia
Tech and Connecticut set up later this week," Corey said. "He already has a
visit to North Carolina set up."
The UNC visit is slated for
the weekend of October 15th. "Georgia, Georgetown, and Rutgers are also being
considered," Corey said.
When asked if Duke had made a call into
the Bynum house, Andrew's big brother (age wise) said, "Not yet. Coach K makes
the first phone call. And he is away right now."
Bynum has visited
the Rutgers campus a few times. His AAU teammates, Anthony Farmer and
Jaron Griffin, have been giving him positive feedback on the Rutgers program and
coaching staff. It's likely this will help Rutgers. But it will be a fierce
battle to land his signature to a letter of intent, especially if Duke makes a
Bynum, just 16-years-old, is an overpowering center
who is just beginning to touch on polishing his individual skills. Andrew
was a key member of the New Jersey All Stars AAU program this past summer. The
skills of Farmer and Griffin also impacted in a positive fashion as the
New Jersey All Stars won the Showcase in the Disney World complex at the
Wide World of Sports in late July.
In the final, Andrew sustained a
sprained ankle. "It's coming along great," Corey said. "He should be ready to
play soon. He dunked a few on me today."
