Makur Maker Heads To HBCU

Five-star Center Makur Maker has announced his commitment to Howard University in Washington, DC.

According to the ESPN database, Maker is the highest-ranked prospect to commit to a historically Black college or university since 2007.

Despite receiving offers from UCLA, Kentucky and Memphis, Maker opted to commit to Howard. 

Maker called out sophomore sensation, Mikey Williams, hoping that his commitment impact Mikey's decision when choosing a school.

The Kenyan-Born averaged 14.7 points and 7.9 rebounds while shooting 73% on 2-pointers last spring and summer with Dream Vision on the Adidas grassroots circuit. 

Maker's commitment is spectacular exposure for HBCU athletics & hopefully will set the trend for other top tier recruits to start heavily considering HBCUs.
