The bop has been sending high numbers of SOs to the same prisons, which is a good thing for reducing their problems. There are so many prisoners who the bop considers SOs (and thus assigns them a "public safety factor) that the serious "urban legend" problems are usually limited to TV shows and the higher security prisons, so if he requests one of them it will be a huge mistake.

Every federal prison has "protective custody" as an option for prisoners who experience more drama than they can deal with. Even there, contact visits are available, but usually on fewer days and hours than general population visitation.

Once he arrives wherever the bop decides to send him, he can find out if he feels threatened to an extent where he should request PC, or an emergency transfer somewhere else. By anticipating problems that will probably never happen, he is making the situation far worse for himself than it needs to be.
