Mays Adding Some Muscle

Garner (NC) High junior James Mays had a great season. Now he's touring with the N.C. Gaters and he appears to have gotten even stronger since the end of his high school year.

Mays Starting To Field Offers

When we last saw James Mays a few weeks ago, it was clear he'd been working on adding some muscle to his 6-8 frame. "I've been lifting," Mays said. "But, sometimes I just do what I can around the house." That means push-ups – Hershel Walker style we presume – and they've been working.

"I've been dunking on more people and they're hitting me and I'm still putting it down."

So far, Mays has heard from Virginia Commonwealth, Maryland, South Carolina and Connecticut. Xavier has been recruiting him too.

"The other day I heard from VCU and Maryland is recruiting me a little," Mays said. Connecticut called two weeks ago and is real interested." Mays feels like South Carolina and VCU have offered grants.

"I would like to stay in the ACC but it really doesn't matter. I want to go to a program where I can play, have fun and like the people."

Mays is playing with the NC Gaters AAU team and will take the SAT for the first time in May. He'll take part in North Carolina AAU pool play this weekend.
