Mayo signing huge for USC
ESPN.com, like a few other outlets, reported in July that Mayo told the coaching staff he would sign with the Trojans. He was supposed to make a public announcement but never did -- either at the ABCD Reebok Camp in New Jersey, at the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas or on a trip to USC.
So, of course, that led to rampant speculation that it wouldn't occur. But from the beginning, Mayo's people around him wanted him in a major media market. He's a one-and-done player, barring something unforeseen, and they want to maximize his exposure.
