Steve Jones of Rivals just announced on CatsIllustrated.com that Wright State transfer Julius Mays has committed to play for John Calipari at the University of Kentucky. The news is huge coming off of a visit by Mays to Purdue this weekend in which many expected he might commit to the Boilermakers. Mays adds an outside shooting threat to the 2012 recruiting class, which was already rated #1 by many recruiting services.
Mays is a 6-2 combo guard from Wright State who averaged 14.1 points per game last season. Mays will be eligible to play right away for the Wildcats as a senior. The only question that remains now is whether or not Calipari is finished for 2012. Will Mays be the final piece of the puzzle or will Calipari try to grab one more big man such as Amile Jefferson? We will find out on Tuesday when Jefferson makes his announcement.
Welcome to the family, Julius Mays.
