Three-Star linebacker Kenneth Bynum of Jacksonville became the 22nd and final piece of Derek Dooley’s class. Bynum was a long-time commit to Cincinnati, and didn’t pick up his Volunteer offer until the de-commitments from Dalton Santos and Otha Peters came in. The Volunteers offered late in the game, and Bynum didn’t even visit until after National Signing Day. But Bynum did come, and he liked what he saw. He signed today.
Linebacker is a position of need for the Volunteers, so Bynum definitely fills a need. In other linebacking news, Channing Fugate is moving from fullback to middle linebacker. Fugate played a lot of linebacker in high school, so it should be a reasonably easy transition.
Welcome to Big Orange Country Kenneth!
