CORONA, Calif. – With the evaluation period in full swing, Centennial junior three-star cornerback Camryn Bynum is coming off of a productive 7-on-7 season. Working with team Ground Zero, Bynum has been working to further refine his skills.
“My offseason has just been training, working a lot on my footwork and getting busy with spring ball and practice at school,” Bynum said. “It’s been going well. Our season is basically over now that we hit all the big tournaments. Now we are just going to hit up the camp circuits when they come around.
“I think I’m just a technician. My technique is really good and my knowledge of the game is very high. That’s how I would describe myself.”
At 5’10”, 170-pounds, Bynum is rated as the No. 88 prospect in the state of California for the 2016 class on 247sports.com. After a strong junior campaign, Bynum has drawn serious interest from across the country and holds plenty of options headed into his senior season.
On May 7, Bynum picked up two offers, from Colorado State and Nevada, taking his total from eight to 10. Out of these 10, Bynum has already visited two schools and is interested in checking out the rest.
“I’m at 10 offers right now,” Bynum said. “The schools that I visited so far that I’m offered by are San Diego State and San Jose State. All the schools are even for me right now until I can take all my visits so I can weigh it out and see which ones I like most.”
At this juncture, Bynum plans to use his official visits, but is unsure of how many officials he will take or to where they will be except for one school that is guaranteed to make his list.
“Right now I have one official set up so far which is at Boise State,” Bynum said. “But that’s the only one I have set up right now.”
The Boise State Broncos offered Bynum last month, and the talented defensive back has remained in steady contact since that time. Broncos Linebacker coach Andy Avalos is Bynum’s primary recruiter.
“The coach I talk to the most is coach Avalos,” Bynum said. “We talk pretty much every week. I talk to all of [the coaches] a lot and they keep in touch too.”
Boise State has done a good job building a relationship with Bynum so far–enough so that he is willing to declare his plans to take an official visit to campus. The Broncos staff has steady competition, however.
“The most [contact] has been with San Diego State and Boise State,” Bynum said. “Washington State has been talking to me a lot too.”
From a general standpoint, Bynum is evaluating each school on a strict criterion. Several areas have become most important for the prep standout according to Bynum.
“I just want to go to a school where I feel at home and I could see myself living there for four to five years,” Bynum said. “Plus a school I could play early at, and a school with a good medical program, like pre-med. That’s what I want to study”
Bynum claims to not have a leader at this point.
