College Football Players Headline Sports Agents

Thomas Mayo Signs With Priority Sports For Representation

Thomas Mayo (@ThomasMayo1) calls himself Mr. NODAYSOFF.  The Senior wide receiver from California University of Pennsylvania better be taking no days off between now and the 2012 NFL Draft.  While many believe he is a talented receiver, he is not aided by the fact that he went to a Division II school (which he actually transferred to from another small school – Concord). currently ranks Mayo as the 39th best wide receiver in a 2012 NFL Draft class of over 300 wideouts.  It does not matter if you play Division I or II football, if you finish your career with over 4,000 receiving yards, you are something special.  Mayo became the 16th player in Division II history to do just that.

Mayo recently signed with Priority Sports & Entertainment to represent him leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft.  The hope is that Mayo will impress scouts at his workouts with his 6’2, 200lb frame.  They already know that the kid can catch a football.
