Makur Maker's interest in Howard University wasn't just talk.
On Friday morning, the five-star center became the highest-rated player ever to commit to a historically black college or university.
He chose an HBCU over schools like UCLA or Kentucky, and he hopes to be a trailblazer for other highly-rated prospects to do the same.
I was the 1st to announce my visit to Howard & other started to dream what if. 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 #MakerMob— Makur Maker (@MakurMaker) July 3, 2020
Williams, who Maker mentioned in his Tweet, is a highly rated 2023 prospect who has long been discussing the possibility of attending a HBCU. And it seems that option is very much still on the table.
