Bynum has led the Bears in passes defensed in each of the last three seasons. He redshirted his first year in Berkeley and then started all 12 games in 2017, garnering Cal's Most Valuable Freshman Award for his efforts (58 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass breakups). Bynum earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors as a sophomore (48 tackles, 2.5 for loss, two interceptions, 10 pass breakups). League coaches voted him second-team all-conference in 2019, as the team captain posted 63 tackles, three for loss, one interception and nine pass breakups in 13 starts. He initially opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19, but returned when the Pac-12 season began in the fall instead of the spring. League coaches voted the senior, who was once again a team captain in 2020, first-team all-conference for his play (19 tackles, two for loss, one interception, two pass breakups) in the team's four contests. He accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl. -- by Chad Reuter
