“I went over to UCLA on Friday and it was really good,” said Bynum. “I liked the campus. It was a great campus. I heard some really good things from Coach (Eric) Yarber.”
It was Bynum’s first time on the UCLA campus and it more than impressed him.
“It was my first time visiting ever and I really had no idea what it would be like,” said Bynum. “It was a big and beautiful campus. I liked how they had their athletic facilities in the middle of campus too.”
While Bynum didn’t get an offer from UCLA, he thinks it could be close.
“Coach (Jim) Mora wasn’t there that day to offer me, but I’m not really worried,” said Bynum. “I think UCLA could be the next offer. Coach Yarber was really positive. I’m not sure if I’ll go to their camp, but I know I’m going to go to some of their spring practices.”
“I’m going with Team 19 and Keyshawn (Johnson) on a visit of some SEC and ACC schools so I could be adding some more offers. I’m hoping that leads to some more,” said Bynum.
“I know that Oregon likes me but they said they don’t do a lot of sophomore offers, but they really want to see me my junior year,” said Bynum. “Travis is like my big brother and he helps me a lot so they’re going to keep hearing about me from him.”
Bynum has two years to sign so he doesn’t anticipate doing that anytime soon.
“I’m going to wait for a while, and maybe decide in the summer before my senior year, but I have a lot of time,” said Bynum.
Academically, Bynum has a 3.7 and will take the ACT and SAT in his junior year.
