Mayo talks top five, Providence visit

Todd Mayo couldn’t have picked a better time to visit Providence, as the Friars defeated No. 7 Villanova by 15 points on Wednesday.

Not surprisingly, Mayo was impressed by his time in Rhode Island.

“The visit went great,” Mayo said. “I like Providence, they definitely get up and down and play, they play hard, never quit and what really surprised me was they made some guards that will possibly be in the NBA this year or next year quit.

“And Providence never let up and it’s the second team they have knocked off this year that was highly ranked in the country.”

While he was on his visit, Mayo also picked up an offer from Keno Davis’ staff.

“It felt good just to know my hard work paid off to get an offer from another D-1 team,” he said.

Mayo, a 6-3 guard from Notre Dame Prep (Mass.), is one of the best shooting guards left on the market.

The Tennessee native has a top five: Baylor, Kansas, Marquette, West Virginia and Providence.

He plans on making his decision during Notre Dame Prep’s last tournament in March, the National Prep Showcase.

Mayo is in the process of planning visits.

“I’m not sure when I will be taking them but I am setting them up today as we speak,” he said.
