Top college basketball prospect Makur Maker has committed to Howard University. Maker chose the HBCU over UCLA. “I was the 1st to announce my visit to Howard & other started to dream ‘what if,'” Maker wrote on Twitter. “I need to make the HBCU movement real so that others will follow. I hope I inspire guys like Mikey Williams to join me on this journey. I am committing to Howard U & coach Kenny Blakeney.” Blakeney is a former Duke guard and many in the sports world are surprised that he was able to attract such a top prospect, could this be a change in the tide for HBCU’S being legitimate contenders in NCAA basketball?
