Eric Mayes will visit to USF this weekend. Bulls247 spoke to him to get the latest on his recruitment prior to his visit.
I volunteer as an asst coach for basketball at Bayshore HS. We played Booker tonight. There was a big kid that played a few minutes for them, but didnt do anything other block a couple shots, get maybe one rebound, and have a few of his shots blocked by a couple of our guys. Wasn't impressed with this kids athleticism. Didn't show much vertical leap. Played awfully soft for how much bigger he was then our guys. Too slow for basketball. Wonder if it was Mayes? I think it may have been looking at his profile pic. He was right about 6'4 240-250lbs, which is what his 24/7 profile says.
Just went and searched online and it definitely was Mayes I saw tonight. He wasn't even a starter. Came off the bench for maybe 5 minutes the entire game. Non factor. Like it said I wasn't impressed with his athleticism on the court. Especially since in the article I just read says he supposedly has played basketball since seventh grade. Idk maybe he had an off night. maybe he's more athletic and physical on the football field.

Good update bbull. We don't need another Ryne Giddens.
Or he might be playing soft so as to not hurt himself before signing day...
