Mayo Visits Providence

Providence College is riding an improbable two game winning streak after scoring back to back upsets over Louisville and Villanova last week at the Dunkin Donuts Center. 

The second of those victories came with an added bonus as Notre Dame Prep guard Todd Mayo was in attendance on Thursday for an unofficial visit. 

Mayo is a six-foot-three scoring combo-guard typically considered among the best available guards in the country. 

With six-foot-seven swingman Markus Crider from Ohio and five-foot-ten point guard Kyan Anderson from Texas having both signed with the Friars during the Early Signing Period, a potential Mayo addition would most likely be slotted for the two-guard spot. 

Mayo, the younger brother of current Memphis Grizzlies star O.J. Mayo, has seen recruitment from the likes of Marquette, Baylor, and Memphis for the majority of the year but is now starting to attract interest from a variety of other high-major programs given his strong season and the lack of high level guards left on the board. 

Mayo currently teams with another Providence commit, 2012 swingman Ricardo Ledo, who arrived at Notre Dame ten days ago.
