Mayen has traveled quite the journey already in his career prior to joining the Huskers. He was originally part of the 2017 recruiting class and committed to the TCU Horned Frogs as the top rated prospect out of Australia. He redshirted his first year and then played in just 17 games his second year as he battled the injury bug. He then transferred to JuCo Chipola College in Marianna, Florida in the panhandle not far from the borders with Georgia and Alabama where he played one season.
While at TCU Mayen averaged 7.9 minutes in the 17 games he played. He averaged just 2.1 points per game while managing a career 42.3% from inside three point range on 26 total attempts. He also averaged 2.1 rebounds per game with a career best performance of 12 points and six rebounds against West Virginia. After two seasons at TCU he transferred to the JuCo ranks.
Lat Mayen was a first-team all-conference performer at Chipola College this past season where he averaged 11.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. Mayen shot 47% from the field and 38% from three-point range (38-for-99).
Mayen will have two years of eligibility remaining when he arrives in Lincoln and will be immediately eligible.
