This rumor started gaining momentum again last night and culminated this morning with a newspaper article from the Dayton Daily News. Here is a link from Pack Pride. It has been known for a while now (here’s an SFN article from April 21) that Mays was gone, but it wasn’t sure where exactly he would choose to go. Some said Kent State. He’ll end up at Wright State.
Julius Mays didn’t feel he fit into North Carolina State’s basketball style, and he wanted to be closer to his hometown of Marion, Ind.
In return, Wright State has landed a transfer that could give the Raiders stability when they lose three key guards after next season.
Mays, who spent two seasons at N.C. State, said Monday, May 17, that he plans to transfer to Wright State, where he will have two seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out a required season because of transfer rules.
“I learned a lot at N.C. State, so I feel like I can come in and be a leader right away,” Mays said.
A 6-foot-3 guard, Mays averaged 4.7 points and 1.2 rebounds in 58 games over two seasons at N.C. State. One of Mays’ best attributes has been his free-throw shooting, as he made 78-of-91 college attempts (85.2 percent).
