Kentucky picked up a player who has the ability to be a very important contributor next season – and he’s not a freshman. Wright State guard Julius Mays made it official today.

Kentucky picked up a player who has the ability to be a very important contributor next season – and he’s not a freshman. Wright State guard Julius Mays made it official today.

The 6-foot-2, combo guard led Wright State in scoring this season with 14 points per game. He shot 42 percent from three and 84 percent from the free-throw line. Mays comes in and provide depth in Kentucky’s backcourt that would have been occupied by another transfer, Ryan Harrow, and freshman Archie Goodwin.

Mays provides a third guard who could be a starter, but should able to back up either player and play a key role as a zone buster and a floor leader.

The Marion, Indiana native was also considering transferring to Purdue. He had visited West Lafayette this weekend, but decided that Kentucky was the better fit.

Mays, who graduates in June, has one season left to play for the Wildcats.
