Mayo thinking about entering NBA draft
Former Messalonskee star Nick Mayo is trying to decide whether to return for his senior season at Eastern Kentucky.

...Mayo, a 6-foot-9 forward and Messalonskee High graduate, said Wednesday he’s in a wait-and see-mode regarding his collegiate future. A three-time All-Ohio Valley Conference first-team member, Mayo said he is considering putting his name in for the NBA predraft scouting combines, where he can be evaluated. If scouts tell Mayo he’s a likely draft pick, he can forgo his senior year of eligibility. If not, Mayo can return to school, providing he doesn’t sign with an agent.

If Mayo does stay in college, he might not return to Eastern Kentucky. Following McHale’s dismissal as coach, ESPN basketball writer Jeff Goodman tweeted that, should Mayo decide to leave Eastern Kentucky, he would be attractive to many schools. Goodman called Mayo “the most talented player in the OVC.”

“Look for Mayo to be a coveted transfer target now,” Goodman tweeted.

Cool. Is the one year sit out rule to discourage kids from moving around? Maybe that should only apply to your first 3 years. Let them go where they want for their final year. Most kids are 1 and done, so if you you are playing 4 years of college ball, you should be rewarded.

A big guy who can shoot and has quickness and athleticism. Don't count him out.
