At 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds with good athleticism and an ability to score, Mayo has seen his stock go up since enrolling at Notre Dame Prep. He has impressed all season long, but Mayo felt loyal to the school that has recruited him for the longest period of time.
"I've had a long year here at Notre Dame Prep," said Mayo. "While some schools are picking up interest now, Marquette has been loyal the whole way."
According to Mayo it isn't just the period of time that Marquette has been recruiting him, but the way they recruited him that made the difference.
"I also like the fact that their whole staff has seen me play and they all like I am a great fit for the Marquette family," Mayo explained. "I've grown to trust Aki Collins and Buzz Williams."
By picking Marquette, Mayo becomes the third commitment in the class. He joins three-star point guard Derrick Wilson as well as four-star small forward Juan Anderson.
