Makur Maker - Howard

Post by tribecalledquest »

#16 overall prospect and five star guy Makur Maker committed to Howard University. First five start guy to an HBCU in who knows how long. Good quotes from him in here. I've never understood how Howard didn't dominate the MEAC.

That's great. Howard president basically just saved the MEAC. With a top-100 academic ranking and $700M endowment, they'd have their options but the President insisted on keeping the MEAC in tact.

Howard has a great campus in a great part of DC. The gym is older but really cool. Worth keeping an eye on moving forward. It is great they stayed in the MEAC as well.

This is HUGE! Maker may turn out to be a pioneer and savior for HBCU if his commitment encourages others to follow suit.

Wow. Blakeney has been a DI assistant since the mid-90's but only in his second year as a DI head coach. Howard won just 2 games this year. But he had worked several years for Under Armour.

Interesting.

I'd be pleasantly surprised to see this as an ongoing trend.
