Mayoum Mayoum, an explosive 6’4” SG out of The Potter’s House Christian Academy High School in Jacksonville Academy, has been offered a scholarship by LMU head coach Stan Johnson.
Mayoum, who was born in Khartoum, Egypt and grew up in Melbourne, Australia, played his high school basketball in Florida, first at DME Academy and then at The Potter’s House Christian Academy. He is in the class of 2020 and would come in as a freshman in the fall.
The rangy, athletic Mayoum is quick and fast, which enables him to break down defenses and relentlessly take the ball to the hoop. He is quick off the floor and seems to be able to hang in the air as he throws down some serious dunkage.
Coach Johnson has said he wants hard-working, tenacious players with high ceilings, and Mayoum certainly fits the bill.
But don’t take our word for it, check this video and gape for yourself:
Mayoum is a good player now with a work ethic and love for the game that gives him that high ceiling that can be reached by receiving top coaching and putting in the hard work that it takes to be the best. He would be a terrific player for the Lions.
Mayoum has gotten a lot of interest from a lot of good schools, including Auburn, Georgetown, Wyoming, McNeese State, Mississippi State, Canisus and Stetson.
We would love for Mayoum Mayoum to come to LMU and become a Lion Lion!
