Mays Visits, Confirms Commitment

Oklahoma State's future all-purpose offensive weapon Todd Mays out of East Mississippi C.C. and originally a standout run-pass quarterback that led Olive Branch, Miss., to a Class 6A state championship made it back home following his official visit to OSU over the weekend. He confirmed all was well with his decision to commit to head coach Mike Gundy and the Cowboys before he even took a visit.

"It was fun and it matched my expectations when I told coach Gundy I was committed to OSU," Mays said after arriving back in Memphis. He did travel with his East Mississippi teammate and all-conference and all-region offensive tackle Brandon Hodges.

"I really like it there, the coaching staff and the team. Our host was Devante Averette and he is a junior college transfer like us (Mays and Hodges), so he was able to tell us what it was like coming from junior college like we are."

Mays is a unique case as this season he has played in every game for the top-ranked and unbeaten Lions, who will play Iowa Western in the NJCAA National Championship Game in Biloxi, Miss., on Dec. 7 at Indian Stadium.

Mays has played quarterback for EMCC in every game even though he is not the starting quarterback. He has completed 15-of-16 passing. He does start most games at running back and he has also played slot receiver.

"Yes sir, I expect to come in and play right away," said the multi-talented Mays.

He also said he is looking forward to being at Oklahoma State in January.

"I'm a December graduate and I will sign in December and be there in Stillwater in January," he added. "We had a good time on the visit and I look forward to being a part of that team. I am fully committed and I won't be looking at any other schools."

Mays is 6-0 and 200 pounds and he told us a few weeks ago that he can run a sub 4.5 in the forty.
