Makur Maker, a five-star recruit announced that he would be committing to Howard University, despite offers from UCLA and Kentucky.
Maker made it clear how important it is to support HBCUs (Historically Black Colege & University) and urged high-profile recruit, Mikey Williams, to follow.
HBCUs are mostly absent from the NCAA tournament, but if high-profile recruits do the same as Maker, then that could change.
Howard University is about to get a lot closer to a March Madness birth.
