Rathan-Mayes to FSU

Xavier Rathan-Mayes keeps the family tradition alive. The 6-3 shooting guard from Canada followed in his fathers footsteps and will play his college basketball for Florida State.

He chose Florida State over UConn and Illinois, who were his other finalist.

Rivals four-star shooting guard is the first commit for head coach Leonard Hamilton in the 2013 class and a big one.

Rathan-Mayes is known for his big-time scoring ability. He adds plenty of scoring off the ball for Florida State and is a huge pickup for the Seminoles basketball program.

It should also be noted that Rathan-Mayes is the teammate of 2014 stud Andrew Wiggins, who Florida State is also pushing hard to acquire because of his family connection to the program and his obvious basketball talents. It should be interesting to see just how much this decision impacts Wiggins, who most believe favor Kentucky and Florida State.

Nonetheless, great scoring addition for Florida State, who picked up one of the best off-ball scoters available in the country.
