BYNUM COMMITS TO TEXAS SOUTHERN
According to his coach, Clyde Jones, Bynum picked up seven scholarship offers after sterling AAU play at a tournament in Las Vegas. The offers are from: Alabama A&M, Florida Atlantic, Portland State, Grambling State, Texas Southern, Long Beach State and Utah State.
Late Friday night, Jones confirmed via text message that Bynum "has just committed to Texas Southern and coach Mike Davis," he said. Jones said Bynum, a 5-10 guard, is at Texas Southern this week on a four-day visit to the Houston-based school.
Bynum had a breakout year for Penn Wood. He's expected to carry the torch this season for the Patriots, after All-Delco Malcolm Richardson's graduation. Bynum posted averages of 10.9 points, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game in his first full season as regular for Jones.
