Xavier Rathan-Mayes is headed to the ACC. He made his pledge to Florida State official at an event with his friends and family Saturday night.

Xavier Rathan-Mayes is headed to Florida State.

After recently cutting his list of schools down to Connecticut, Illinois and Florida State, the four-star recruit out of Huntington (W.V.) Prep opted to head south and play for Leonard Hamilton and the Seminoles.

“I think all three schools were total opposites in terms of style of play for Xavier and it make it a very difficult decision,” Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told Scout.com.

“I think in the end the familiarity with FSU, Tharon [Mayes] playing there and the state of the ACC were the determining factors,” Fulford added. “FSU got a big time scorer and competitor.”

One of the premier scorers in the country, Rathan-Mayes 13.7 points through 19 games in the Nike EYBL with CIA Bounce. Rathan-Mayes hit on 40.3-percent of three-point attempts.

A native of Canada, Rathan-Mayes is ranked No. 40 overall in the 2013 recruiting class and is regarded as a four-star recruit.

Rathan-Mayes is Florida State’s first pledge from the 2013 recruiting class.
