SMU has had a lot of talented players visit SMU this spring and one of those recently was 2017 Lincoln HS (Tex.) wide receiver Devodric Bynum who enjoyed his visit to SMU.
“I loved it, I got to watch the spring practices, coach Chad Morris came over and spoke with me briefly about the team,” Bynum said, “I loved practice, I got to talk with coach Stepp and Buddy Wyatt they’re just looking forward to this year.”
Bynum’s relationship over the last couple of weeks and months has continued to grow after the team offered Bynum while he was hurt.
“We have a good bond already they would be my top pick right now always,” Bynum said, “They offered me while I was hurt and just let me know about the school and that they loved me as a player.”
With Bynum now fully healthy and back in action, SMU has been pushing Bynum hard to commit and would love to have him as a part of stanggang17
“They just let me know that they are really interested in me and they really want me to commit to SMU, they always talk about stanggang17 and the accomplishments that I’ll have if I get there as a player
One of the best aspects of his visits to SMU was getting to visit SMU and the facilities he got to see.
“I always love the facilities, I love the dorms and the way it’s a nice setup,” Bynum said.
Currently SMU is number one and Bynum’s only offer, but he will continue to visit other schools and make a decision later in the summer.
“I’ll be at USC this summer, I have a few other visits that are coming up,” Bynum said, “On Saturday I got a visit to Texas Tech, Thursday I have one to UNT and then in the summer I got ones to USC and California, might head down to Notre Dame.”
Overall, the staff has continued to express optimism to Bynum about the direction of the school and the current rebuild that is taking place.
“They told me that they’re building a new indoor facility so by the time my senior year comes or by the time I attend SMU it will be in for a new direction, a rebuilding of what it used to be and have it to where it was before the death penalty,” Bynum said, “They’re just trying to bring it back and I think coach Chad Morris is just trying to build it back and he’s done a very good job.”
Bynum is also planning to make it to a couple of SMU’s games this upcoming season.
When it does come time for Bynum to decide on a school, the recruitment and the connection between the coaches and players will be pivotal for Bynum.
“The recruitment and building a better bond, if they’re not really building a bond with those players what’s the point in attending that college,” Bynum said.
