Jared Bynum had a healthy list of suitors once he decided to transfer following a strong freshman season at St. Joseph’s. After averaging over 11 points, four assists and three rebounds, Bynum narrowed his list of potential destinations to Providence, Seton Hall, Stanford, Virginia Tech, Butler, Clemson, and Notre Dame.
The Friars eventually won out, and had a redshirt season to groom Bynum while he sat out during the 2019-20 campaign.
Expectations had been high for Bynum prior to him taking to the floor this past season. When the 2019-20 season started to go sideways we began hearing rumblings (both on telecasts and from national writers) about how the Friars were missing a true floor general like Bynum.
