Kansas lands transfer G Zeke Mayo from South Dakota State

Zeke Mayo is transferring home.

The South Dakota State guard, a native of Lawrence, Kan., announced his commitment to Kansas on social media after making an unofficial visit to campus Tuesday.

“A homecoming like no other. Lawrence, KS, let’s rock,” Mayo wrote on X, formerly Twitter, with the hashtag #committed.

Mayo played at Lawrence High but went overlooked by the Jayhawks and other major programs. He spent three seasons at South Dakota State and was named Summit League Player of the Year in 2023-24, averaging 18.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game while shooting 46.6 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from the 3-point arc.

In 102 career games (87 starts), Mayo has averaged 15.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest.

Mayo said Saturday that he was considering Creighton, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
