After receiving a scholarship offer on Wednesday, the 6-3, 170 lbs. Mathis committed to the Lobos on Thursday afternoon, announcing his decision via Twitter: "After a ton of thinking. Iv finally made the decision to commit to the University Of New Mexico! Couldn't be more happy! #LoboNation!"
Mathis, a West Linn, Oregon native, had offers from Portland, Oregon State, and fellow MWC school, UNLV. "I knew about a month ago [the Lobos] were going to offer, so it's something I've had in the back of my head," Mathis told The Oregonian.
According to Rivals Rating, Mathis is a 3-star recruit. Alex Kline from The Recruit Scoop tweeted that the "rising senior has a great ability to see the floor & create scoring opportunities."
Mathis becomes the third member of the Class of 2015 to pledge to the Lobos, joining fellow three-star commits Jordan Hunter, a point guard from Ozen High (Texas) and Corona del Sol High wing Dane Kuiper. When the trio arrive on campus in the fall of 2015, they will add depth to a perimeter that will include Cullen Neal and former Butler guard Elijah Brown, who will sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules.
