Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Jeff Goodman reports Julius Mays commits to Kentucky

Via John Clay:

Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports is reporting that former Wright State guard Julius Mays has committed to Kentucky.

Mays visited Purdue this weekend and said he would make a decision after the visit. Some thought the 6-foot-2 combo guard was a Purdue lean, but the Marion, Indiana native has decided on UK. As a graduate student with a year of eligibility remaining, he is eligible to play immediately.

If true, this commitment addresses UK's need for perimeter shooting. Mayes is known as a 3-point shooter, and shot 42% for Wright St. last year. With the loss of Doron Lamb, to the NBA Draft the biggest remaining 3-point threat at Kentucky is currently Kyle Wiltjer, and he is expected to be more of a front-court player.

If this turns out to be right, the addition of Amile Jefferson would definitely put Kentucky in a good place if he decides to become a Wildcat on Tuesday. Even if he doesn't, UK will have addressed a major expected weakness with the addition of Mays.
