6′-2″ sophomore point guard Skylar Mays ended his recruitment on Saturday, as the University Lab (LA) prospect will stay in Baton Rogue, and play for the LSU Tigers. Mays announced his SEC commitment, via his Twitter account. Mays was reportedly offered a scholarship by the Tigers in June.
Mays is considered by some in Louisiana to be the top point guard in the state, among underclassmen. LSU head coach Johnny Jones should be extremely familiar with Mays’ game, as his son plays at University Lab with Mays, on a team that potentially includes two other sophomore D-1 prospects.
Mays already has an AAU national title under his belt, as his Red Storm squad won the 9th grade AAU D-1 championship last summer. Coach Jones has the LSU program going extremely strong on the recruiting trail right now, and capitalizing on a local talent like Mays is yet another important addition for the Tigers. The Tigers previously held a pledge from top-5 junior prospect Ben Simmons, who could be the beneficiary of Mays’ passes in the future.
I've decided to commit to Louisiana State University. #geauxTigers--------------------------------------------
