Lufkin High School has always been known for producing quality Division I football players. Jamarkus McFarland is one of the best in the class of 2009, but Lufkin also has a very talented 2010 safety prospect in Carrington Byndom. Byndom camped at Texas over the weekend and talked about the experience.
“Yes sir, it was worth it,” Carrington Byndom said when asked if he enjoyed his stay in Austin.
Byndom didn’t get much of an opportunity to sightsee around the campus in Austin, but he did enjoy participating in drills with some of the country’s elite prospects.
When asked about the best part of the trip, Byndom said, “At the end, coming together and using all the things they taught us.”
Byndom spent most of his time during drills hanging out with his fellow defensive backs and the two guys that impressed him the most are currently committed to play football for UT.
“Marcus Davis, who is committed to Texas, was there” Byndom said. “Another DB from Euless Trinity, Eryon Barnett, was impressive. I mainly talked to the DBs.”
Byndom said that his trip to Austin would likely be his only camp visit this summer. The junior-to-be hasn’t exactly started thinking about recruiting yet, but Texas is near the top of his list.
“I haven’t really started thinking about it (recruiting). I just want to make it to the next level,” Byndom said.
The 6-foot-0, 170-pound Byndom finished his sophomore season with 78 tackles, two interceptions and one fumble recovery on his way to earning First Team All-District honors.
