Terrell Bynum watching USC

Servite 2017 wide receiver Terrell Bynum is one of the top players in his class, and he proved that Sunday with a good showing at The Opening in Oakland.

Anaheim (Calif.) Servite sophomore wide receiver Terrell Bynum was one of the first recruits in the 2017 class to receiver a scholarship from USC.

Last Sunday, Bynum showed why he earned that early scholarship offer with smooth route running and some effortless catches against the best defensive back group The Opening tour has had nationwide.

Having toured several parts of the United States with Team 19 All-Stars this spring, Bynum himself has seen much of the country.

“It’s a dream come true to have these offers and to be able to see all of these schools,” said Bynum. “My father comes along with me to every school, so he loves the experience too.

“I’m just taking it all day by day and I’m trying not to rush anything. I don’t want to end up de-committing, so I’m seeing as am many schools as possible to see what program fits me best. That goes for the school, the offense and everything else.”

Bynum did show up to The Opening in Oakland wearing a USC sweatshirt.

“People see me wear UCLA and Oregon gear, so today it was USC.”

Bynum has been in steady contact with the Trojans coaching staff, visiting USC for spring ball practices in March and April.

“They love me up there and feel it’s a good situation for me,” said Bynum. “That will be the time when they need to restock the receiver group.

“They’re expecting Juju Smith to leave early, so they’ll have to rebuild some that year I come in.”

Bynum grew up watching USC, but the past is not what attracts him to the Trojans football program.

“It’s in my backyard, the coaching staff is real laid back, but they get you better,” said Bynum. “Everything is on your shoulders, and you control your own destiny, but USC definitely gets their players ready for the next level.”

Indeed, Bynum will watch what happens in the next year at USC very closely.

“The 2016 class hasn’t even signed yet, so I want to see what happens there,” said Bynum. “If USC gets extremely loaded, I would still consider them, but it would be open to a lot of other schools.

“Right now I’m just in the process of looking at all of my options.”

As for Bynum’s summer plans, he wants to unofficially Oregon and possible Cal and Stanford again. He has no plans of camping at USC or UCLA.
