"I committed to USF," Mayes said. "I like the new coaching staff, team and players. I really felt a good vibe from the players. The facilities are tremendous."
USF offered this 6-foot-5 and 253-pound defensive end recently.
"They offered me last week," Mayes said. "I knew that if the visit went well I would commit. Plus, my mom came on the trip with me. She loved it and she gave me her blessing."
