As the new staff takes over in Seattle and the new direction of the Washington program comes into focus, attrition is expected.

But maybe this one bit of news comes as more of a surprise than not. After previously announcing he’d return for a final season at UW, senior wideout Terrell Bynum is headed elsewhere. According to multiple reports, the Long Beach native has put his name in the transfer portal.

Bynum has been at UW since 2017. He redshirted his first year, but has made appearances in 34 games dating back to 2018. The 6-foot-1 wideout has earned 19 starts in his Husky career and finishes with 65 receptions for 934 yards and six scores. Bynum had 26 catches for 436 yards (second-most on the team) and four scores (most) during the 2021 season. He averaged nearly 17 yards a catch.

He’ll be a grad transfer with one year to play at his next stop. Bynum is the second Husky wideout to put his name in the portal since the season ended, joining second-year wideout Sawyer Racanelli. Their departures leave the Huskies’ receiving room a little thin for the time being, though reinforcements are on the way. Four-star wideout Germie Bernard signed with the program during the early signing period, and classmate Denzel Boston will arrive in the summer.
