After missing out on every high-profile receiver prospect that they offered in the 2016 class, the Huskies have redeemed themselves by securing the commitment of four-star Scout 100 wide receiver Terrell Bynum (6'1", 177 lbs.) out of St. John Bosco High in Bellflower, Calif.

Washington originally offered Terrell last May, and remained one of his top schools throughout the recruiting process. Most recruits are courted mainly by one or two coaches from each school interested in them, but Terrell told Bruin Report Online's David Woods that the entire Washington coaching staff was involved in his recruitment. Bynum's commitment is a big feather in the cap of new receivers coach Bush Hamdan, especially after his predecessor Brent Pease struggled to reel in top-flight receivers during his two years on staff.
Scout's Greg Biggins has this to say about Terrell:
Bynum is a smooth pass catcher with a nice burst and very good speed. He has soft hands, runs well after the catch and has the ability to be both a deep threat and a sure handed possession type. He's already an advanced route runner, can explode in and out of his breaks and as he gains strength and size, will be an even tougher cover.
The 84th-overall ranked recruit spent last year playing for Anaheim Servite and was teammates with fellow UW commit Keith Taylor. In 2015, he hauled in 39 receptions for 611 yards and 3 touchdowns.
