He worked with the offensive line in his first season then switched to the defensive line in 2012.

Mayes walked on at Kansas and developed into a standout offensive guard, being named the Jayhawks Offensive Lineman of the Year as a senior. He was a two-time honorable mention All Big XII selection while playing for current Owls' Offensive Coordinator John Reagan alongside current Owls Offensive Quality Control assistant Ryan Cantrell.

Mayes was a two-year starter and a member of three bowl championship squads (2005 Fort Worth Bowl, 2008 Orange Bowl, 2008 Insight Bowl). He also excelled in the classroom, earning back-t0-back spots on the Big XII All Academic second team.

He earned both his bachelor's (Business Management Leadership 2008) and master's degree (Sport Management 2011) from Kansas. He served as a Graduate Assistant on KU's Strength and Conditioning staff while earning his masters.
