Mayes Claims Three Offers

Jordin Mayes impresses at City of Palms, and spent some time with Scout.com discussing his recruitment.

The City of Palms Classic is a great place for prospects to step their games up and show at a national tournament that they've improved their overall game.

One of the prospects that caught our eye was 6-foot-1 guard Jordin Mayes, of Los Angeles (Calif.) Westchester. Through four games in Fort Myers (Fla.), Mayes averaged just over 14 points and three assists per game.

"I think I've been playing good," Mayes told Scout.com. "I'm in a point guard role and I'm getting everyone the ball and I'm doing everything I'm supposed to do on the court."

Over the course of his high school career, Mayes has had his fair share of critics. The main topic is whether he's a point guard or shooting guard.

At the COP, Mayes tried to put that talk to bed, as he played at a solid pace, created for teammates and made good decisions while playing with the ball in his hands for Westchester.

"I'm a point guard," Mayes said definitively. "That's who I am. Even though I can score I'm a point guard."

College coaches have been evaluating Mayes, and he's claiming scholarship offers from a trio of schools – Arizona, Boston College and San Diego State. He also has interest from Oregon and Nevada.

"It's going good right now," he said of his recruitment. "I'm just taking it all in and enjoying it."

Although he doesn't have specific dates set up, Mayes said he's planning to visit Arizona and San Diego State in the near future. He doesn't have a timetable for making his collegiate decision.
