The buzz throughout the two-day tournament was that a commitment to Marquette was inevitable. Mayo even went so far as to cancel a scheduled visit to Central Florida for this weekend. But Thursday brought an offer from West Virginia, which many thought would be a big favorite if it decidedly to aggressively pursue Mayo, who is from Morgantown and plays AAU ball for the West Virginia Rush.
While a host of other high-majors including Memphis, Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Providence were all heavily involved in his recruitment, Mayo reportedly spent Thursday night and Friday morning debating between a fresh start at Marquette or returning home to West Virginia.
Ultimately, Mayo chose Marquette and called coach Buzz Williams to make his verbal commitment on Friday afternoon.
