Mayfield had real potential. In fact, he still does, he just has to put it all together. I won't speculate on the cause for his dismissal from the Charlotte 49er's basketball program, but with the reported earlier discipline for marijuana it sounds like he wasn't taking his school responsibilities seriously.
Will some other team give him a shot? Maybe he should try South Florida like Mike Mercer did, or even a lower level team.
The transition from high school to college is hard. Even if you're the leading scorer on the team, if you don't manage the challenges of being away from home and playing big-time basketball, you can find yourself on the outside looking in.
