According to sources, the 6-foot-4 guard and Scout's top-ranked player in the Class of 2007 is currently on a visit to USC.
Mayo arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday night and will leave on Friday.
Mayo has been less than forthcoming about schools he is considering in the past. Many people have speculated that he'd wind up at Kansas State after Bob Huggins took the job in Manhattan. However, this is a clear indication that Mayo is seriously considering playing for Tim Floyd at USC.
Floyd is a former NBA coach and, according to sources, that's appealing to Mayo. USC has also built a new multi-million facility and Mayo also likes the fact that he can play in a major city and help build a program.
If Mayo winds up at USC, don't be surprised to see North College High (Ohio) teammate Bill Walker (Scout.com, No. 7) follow him to L.A.
Mayo and Walker are scheduled to attend the Reebok ABCD Camp next week.
Mayo is the two-time Mr. Basketball in Ohio and Walker averaged 21.7 points last season at North College Hill. There was speculation that they could be headed elsewhere for their final season of high school, but sources maintain that they will likely finish their careers at North College Hill.
