"UConn was closer for me and my family," Bynum said. "I felt like I could connect with him (Coach Jim Calhoun). He was definitely easy to talk to. He actually declined guys (other prospects). I thought that was very good."
Bynum, who also said North Carolina had been waiting on Richard Hendrix, also said he liked Georgia Tech a lot. But Connecticut was the winner in this recruiting process.
"UConn showed me a little bit more love," Bynum said.
Andrew also stated he may take a look at the NBA Draft next June. "It is looking ahead and I am trying to win a State championship," Bynum said.
Andrew said if he got the impression he would be in the lottery, he would seriously consider taking a chance in the 2005 NBA draft. Bynum said he will sign a letter of intent with Connecticut in the November signing period.
