BATON ROUGE – Three-year LSU basketball junior guard Skylar Mays announced on his Instagram account on Friday (IG: @sky.mays) that “I am now announcing my decision to declare for the NBA draft.”

Mays was a second-team All-SEC selection as part of an LSU team that went 28-6 overall with a 16-2 record in winning the SEC regular season championship and advancing to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. He was named to the Google Cloud CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-America team with a 4.01 GPA in pre-med/kinesiology.

Mays, from Baton Rouge, had his best of his three years at LSU this year with the Tigers, averaging 13.4 points a game with 3.3 rebounds 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game (second in the conference in steals average).

Just testing the waters... like Tremont did last year. As long as he doesn’t sign with an agent, he can come back!

This is 100% on Joe If WW was working, Mays would likely have stayed and we might be playing today. How can any of you expect a kid to stay under the current circumstances?

They have examples Like Anthony Johnson, and Toby Weathersby among others leaving too soon.But I guess, money talks.One good payday(contract),well managed is better than none.

It really doesn't matter who stays or goes we need to keep Wade going forward. I can take a bit of a down year as long as you have a great coach and recruiter you'll be back on top again soon.

Because of his strong academics, I thought Skylar would've stayed.

So funny how others say these fine young Tigers are making a bad decision. They gave their all for LSU. The NBA isn't the only basketball league where one with skills can make a living. Let's thank them for all they've done for LSU and wish them luck in their professional endeavors.

Giving their all for LSU shouldn't mean the rest of us have to wear purple goggles. A bad decision is a bad decision regardless.

To arcalades- You’re right, but they can’t change the fact that they made a bad decision to live in Baton Rouge. Now they made the right decision to leave!
