Where there is smoke there is usually fire.
The rumors regarding Julius Mays potentially transferring from NC State have been on the message boards for a few days, but this morning things got a bit more intense. It’s tough to say whether Mays’ potential decision to transfer says anything about the recruitment of CJ Leslie, but it certainly appears a connection is there. It’s tough to blame Mays for leaving. His minutes would have likely gone way down next year compared with his first two years on campus. He can go somewhere smaller and get playing time and be a contributor to a solid mid-major type team.
Here’s a radio segment from this morning.
Message boards and Internet rumors. The latest one involves N.C. State guard Julius Mays leaving the program.
PackPride.com editor James Henderson joined Mark Thomas on 620 The Buzz Wednesday morning. Henderson was aware of the impending situation with Mays but was noncommittal when discussing it on the show.
“We really can’t run anything on that situation until we can get someone to publicly comment on it,” Henderson said. “But from everything we gathered all signs point to that happening. It’s just a matter of us reaching Julius, a family member, someone along those lines to confirm it.”
A source close to the situation has informed Pack Pride sophomore guard Julius Mays will transfer from NC State at the end of the school semester. A family member confirmed that Mays would be leaving NC State, but has yet to decide on a destination.
“He’s transferring,” said Mays’ grandfather. “I don’t know where he’s going yet. He told us we would talk about all of that when he got home from North Carolina.”
