2018 Oregon DL Prospect Gaining Attention

Over the past couple of months, 2018 Wilsonville (Or.) DL Draco Bynum has been a prospect whose stock has been on the rise and recently he visited Montlake to check things out...


"I had a great time," Bynum said of his visit. "It was such a great atmosphere (at Washington) and the coaches and people there as part of the support staff all treated me really well.

"I talked to the coaches, especially coach (Ikaika) Malloe and they just said they really liked me and they were still evaluating things with me."

In addition to his visit to Seattle a few weeks back, Bynum also has visited Oregon State and he had plans to visit Washington State, but those plans fell through.

"With my schedule, it was just getting to be too much, so I just decided to stay home and re-charge my batteries. 

"I definitely want to get out there to meet with the coaches and check out things for myself, but it was just too much time at this point in my season."

At 6'5" and 250 pounds, Bynum has the size to play either end or inside at tackle.

"Honestly, I will play wherever a staff decides I fit best for them," Bynum said. "I’m quick for a guy my size and I have good hands. I also get off the ball really well and that helps me on defense.”

So far this season, Bynum has totaled 42 tackles (35 solo), nine tackles-for-loss, seven sacks, four pass breakups and a blocked punt while playing mostly defensive tackle and he’s hauled in seven receptions for 183 yards and a score as a tight end on offense.

We'll continue to keep track of Bynum's progress through the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
