The 2018 Washington Huskies Recruiting Class Grew In Number as 3-star Draco Bynum Commits
The 2018 Washington Huskies Recruiting Class has been virtually all offense so far. The only player claimed on defense has been 3-star outside linebacker Jack Sirmon. Until recently that is.
Near the end of April 2017, the Washington Huskies landed their second defender for the class of 2018. That player is none other than 6-foot-5 250 pound strong side defensive end Draco Bynum. A tell-tale tweet of Washington Huskies Head Coach Chris Petersen captured the news that another recruit had committed to UW.
Moments later, Draco Bynum announced he committed to the Washington Huskies.
Bynum is one more Oregon prize who has elected to pursue NCAA football as a Washington Husky. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound versatile lineman was heavily recruited, already holding offiers from Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, Duke, Nebraska, UCLA, USC, Utah and others on his way to committing to the Washington Huskies.
Scout.com’s Greg Biggins made note of Bynum following the 2017 Under Armour All-American Camp. The event was held at Mission Viejo, California, and marked a ten city tour of the competition nationwide.
"“Bynum is an impressive looking defensive end with a prototype frame for the position. He plays with a relentless motor to him, does a nice job disengaging, showed a burst off the edge and is a naturally strong kid with a lot of physicality. You should expect to see his stock really soar this spring when colleges can see him up close and personal.”"
On one hand, his size is ideal for a defensive end, at a height which allows plenty of muscle to add to his frame. On the other hand, there is plenty of room to continue growing. He will be a strong addition to the team next season.
