2017 4-star WR Terrell Bynum Planning For Offseason

Dec. 16 -- The Anaheim (Calif.) Servite 2017 four-star receiver, Terrell Bynum, is planning to visit some schools in the offseason and he starts fully going in to the recruiting process...

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite 2017 receiver Terrell Bynum is coming off a solid junior campaign where he earned First Team All-Trinity League honors.

Now Bynum can shift some of his offseason focus to recruiting, where he boasts offers from ArizonaArizona State, MiamiNebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington State, Boston College, Colorado, Colorado State, Illinois, Louisville and San Diego State.

Other schools could be joining the mix for Bynum too.

"I've been building a good relationship with Notre Dame and Coach (Mike) Denbrock," said Bynum.  "And I'd like to hear more from Baylor or TCU.  I'm thinking about going to visit some SEC schools too, like Alabama, Tennessee and Florida with Wyatt Davis."

From that group, only Tennessee has offered, but Bynum is hoping to see more come in.

From the schools that have offered, Washington, UCLA and USC continue to have a presence in his recruitment.

He visited Washington unofficially last month, but the coach recruiting him, Brent Pease, was let go.  Still, that doesn't affect the Huskies since Bynum is also close with head coach Chris Petersen.

"It sucked about Coach Pease because I talked to him every day, in fact, I actually talked to him the day before he got fired," said Bynum.  "I called Coach Pete though and I understood why he did it and I didn't question it.  My cousin who played college football said it happens and that's why it's important to love the school and not the coaching staff.  Washington has a new receievrs coach now (Bush Hamdan) and now I will build a relationship with him and it will probably be the same outcome.  And I have a great relationship with Coach Pete so of course, they will always be in the mix."

UCLA has long been a factor in Bynum's recruitment.

"Coach Yarbs (Eric Yarber) and I are really getting the communication going," said Bynum.  "He's been busy with his recruits for this class, but we've built a good relationship.  UCLA has Josh Rosen and he's a great guy and a great quarterback and I'd love to play with them.  He's going to be something special in UCLA's history.  Theo Howard is about to go up there and I talk with a lot of the Bosco guys (where Bynum played as a freshman) like Josh, Jaleel Wadood, Jacob Tuioti-Mariner and then Jack Savage I played with at Servite."

USC is another local school that has been a part of Bynum's recruitment for some time.

"Coach Tee Martin was who offered me at USC but I still talk to Coach (Clay) Helton too," said Bynum.  "In fact, I talked to him as much as Coach Martin.  We'll have to see how everything pans out there but they'll be a great team with the new coaches and USC has a great program.  I already have a good feel for that staff and they will be a factor in my recruitment."

Bynum said he's targeting next summer for when he'd like to make a decision.

"I'm thinking late spring or by summer I'll make my commitment," said Bynum.  "I'm going to be playing with Elite Athletes this spring and do some camps.  I want to participate in The Opening Finals so I'll go to the camp in Los Angeles and maybe a couple college camps."

Bynum said he'd like to make a return trip to Washington and wants to get out to Notre Dame to visit, while also checking out UCLA and USC again.
