Marquette officially added a third member to its 2011 recruiting class when guard Todd Mayo, the brother of Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo, signed his National Letter of Intent and will arrive on campus this summer to begin preparation for his freshman year.

“He is the perfect complement to what we lost and what we have returning,” coach Buzz Williams said in the press release. “He has been around the game his entire life, and we are grateful that he believed our culture was what was best for his future.”

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Mayo played at four schools in the last four years, most recently at Notre Dame Prep, in Fitchburg, Mass., in 2010-’11.  He averaged 22 points and six assists per game and helped Notre Dame to the National Prep Championship game this year.

He averaged 28.3 points over the three-game tournament, which led all players at the event.  The team finished the year 33-4.

As a high school sophomore in 2007-’08,  Mayo, a native of Huntington, W.Va., averaged 22.6 points per game and shot 47 percent from the floor at South Point High School in Ohio.  The Panthers went 20-0 in the regular season and helped the school to its first Ohio Valley Conference title since 1990.

The 6-foot-3 Mayo will have four years of eligibility and joins forward Juan Anderson and guard Derrick Wilson in the 2011 recruiting class.
