Do we have another Alex Oriakhi situation on the horizon?
It’s a possibility.
Coach Cal likes where he stands with Julius Mays, but with the former Wright State guard set to visit Purdue this weekend, it could mean bad news for the Cats. Joe Luce, Mays’ high school coach at Marion, said Mays could accept Matt Painter’s offer this weekend on his visit to West Lafayette. Mays arrives on campus tonight and he thinks it could be a great situation.
“I’m trying to find the place that is best for me,” said Mays. “I want to go to the place I will be most comfortable. Purdue would be a great situation to go into and be a veteran player.”
“I would have a chance to score the ball and play guard with a great group of guys. I feel like I could play for coach (Matt) Painter. I watch a lot of basketball, and any time Purdue is on, I watch them. You never know if this is my last visit. If I’m ready to choose, that’s what I will do.”
Cal was caught off guard when Alex Oriakhi committed to Missouri during his visit, and now it appears there is at least a chance it could happen again.
