N.C. State notes: Jefferson to decide, Mays to Kentucky, declining attendance

Offseason? It was relatively busy weekend for N.C. State basketball and its potential future, and former, players.

• McDonald's All-American forward Amile Jefferson has scheduled a press conference on Tuesday (4 p.m.) at his high school in Philadelphia to announce his college decision. Jefferson, ranked as the No. 25 prospect in the class by ESPN, has N.C. State, Duke, Kentucky, Ohio State and Villanova on his list.

Another former Wolfpack guard to Kentucky?

Kentucky will pursue a third straight trip to the Final Four, and second straight national title, with at least one former N.C. State guard. There's a chance Julius Mays could make it two.

Mays, who transferred from N.C. State to Wright State in 2010, has a scholarship offer from Kentucky, he said Wednesday.

After a breakout season at Wright State, Mays, who will graduate from the Horizon League school in June, is also contemplating offers from Purdue, Michigan State and Illinois. Under NCAA rules, Mays can graduate and be immediately eligible for the upcoming 2012-13 season.
