When Will Bynes Announce?

Boyd H. Anderson (Lauderdale Lakes, FL) 4-star linebacker Josh Bynes is hitting the home stretch in the recruiting process, as he is set to announce his college choice sometime in the next two weeks. However, while Bynes is still looking to decide on which school he will choose, he is also still working on setting a date for his announcement. Read inside for full story.

Internet reports surfaced on Thursday afternoon that the 6'2, 240 pound Bynes had set a date for next Tuesday to announce his commitment, but according to Bynes that is not the case.

"No, that's not true," said Bynes. "If anything, I'd do it next Friday. It's not going to be on Tuesday."

In fact, the premier Sunshine State linebacker is still trying to decide when he will announce his college choice.

"I'm thinking about next Friday, but I'm not sure quite yet. I'm thinking about doing it then, but I'm not really sure. If not, then it could be on Signing Day still."

Bynes, who made his official visit to South Carolina this past weekend, hosted two Gamecock coaches for an in-home visit on Thursday, and he said that meeting went well.

"It went pretty good with Coach (Tyrone) Nix and Coach G. (Robert Gillespie.) I know Coach G. because he's recruiting me, and Coach Nix is a pretty good guy. We just talked and stuff. It was a pretty good visit."

Lastly, Bynes noted that he still claims a top four of South Carolina, Auburn, Iowa, and Louisville, but he hopes to trim two teams off that list in the near future.

"I'm going to think about which ones are going to be my top two, because I'm going to eliminate two this coming week. I'm going to have it down to two (schools) by my announcement."
