Mays said he is 6 feet 1, 190 pounds, and capable of running 40 yards in 4.5 seconds. He said he had a vertical jump of 38 inches at a Nike combine when he was Berkeley (Calif.) High student.
Mays was a receiver as Berkeley High and as a CCSF freshman in 2018. After that he moved to defensive back. The past season, he started at cornerback, then shifted to nickelback when the Rams went into a five-DB package. He projects to play corner, nickel and, even, safety for the Warriors.
Mays has three years to play two UH seasons.
He is the second mid-year transfer to join the Warriors’ secondary. Sterlin Ortiz, a safety who played at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, also is enrolled in UH’s spring semester.
