Offers: Including Washington, Bynum had offers from nine schools in the Pac 12 as well as Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Tennessee among others.
Why Washington: "They have one of the top business schools in the country and I just fell in love with the staff and the city."
Analysis: "Bynum is a smooth pass catcher with a nice burst and very good speed. He has soft hands, runs well after the catch and has the ability to be both a deep threat and a sure handed possession type. He's already an advanced route runner, can explode in and out of his breaks and as he gains strength and size, will be an even tougher cover." -- Greg Biggins
Position Projection: Once he sets foot on campus, Bynum has the chance to push for playing time. He's a polished receiver with the ability make plays with his legs in the open field, but he's also got very good speed, so his ability to get deep is a huge trait he could bring to the receiver corps that lost speedster John Ross early to the NFL Draft.
2017 Season Projection: With Ross gone, there will be a battle to see who plays the "X" or "open side" receiver spot. Obviously, Dante Pettis has a chance to shine there, but what might make more sense is leaving Pettis at the "Z" where he had so much success this past season and letting players like Bynum, Alex Cook, Ty Jones and Jordan Chin battle it out for the other side.
