Widely considered one of Louisiana's top prospects, this marks a major addition for Johnny Jones' program. Mays plays his high school ball on LSU's campus at University Lab.
Mays first picked up his offer this past summer, and it was his first at the time. Mays was watching LSU's victory against Auburn and decided to make his commitment.
Mays is the first pledge for LSU in the 2016 class.
"Well I already go to school on campus so I've always been comfortable with LSU and the nature of LSU sports," Mays said. "Plus my parents have always told me that they want me to play at a school close to home so they can watch me play at the collegiate level."
