The Tennessee Volunteers and head coach Derek Dooley have secured their 22nd signature of the 2012 recruiting class two weeks after National Signing Day.

Kenneth Bynum, who officially visited Tennessee this week, has given his signature to the Vols.

"I had a great time on my visit," Bynum told InsideTennessee on Tuesday.

One Tennessee coach that made a lasting impression on Bynum during his visit was new defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri.

"He is an intense guy and he really seems like he knows his stuff," he said. "He has coached a lot of great players. I think he is a great coach. It was nice to meet with him."

Bynum, a two-star linebacker, chose between Tennessee and Cincinnati in the end. He also had offers from Illinois, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Rutgers, Southern Miss, Stanford and West Virginia.

A Jacksonville, Fla., native, Bynum is a 6-foot, 210-pounder who claims a 3.8 GPA and an 18 ACT score. He plans to major in Chemistry.

Bynum and William M. Raines (Fla.) High School are fresh off an 8-4 season that took them to the second round of the FHSAA Class 4A state playoffs where they fell to The Bolles School 24-6.

The junior outside linebacker was a FHSAA Class 4A All-State selection and also earned Super-24 honors from the The Florida Times-Union. Tennessee quarterback signee Nathan Peterman was also a member the Super-24 award.
