Mayes, 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, transferred to Miami Northwestern to play his senior season. After getting offered by Syracuse back in the spring, Miami started getting serious about him. He camped here and Monday night landed the offer he always wanted -- and he committed to the Hurricanes.
"Congrats to Ryan Mayes on committing to the University Of Miami," said NW assistant coach TY Conyers.
Mayes plays on both sides of the ball in high school but is being recruited by Miami to play on defense. That's fine with him.
"I honestly don't care about the position I play. I just want to help my team and play to my potential," Mayes said. "I prefer defense because I like to hit, I like to be physical."
Mayes becomes the 17th commitment for the Hurricanes in their 2014 class.
