Five-star recruit Makur Maker commits to Howard over powerhouses UCLA, Kentucky

Five-star recruit Makur Maker committed to Howard University on Friday, choosing a historically Black college/university over UCLA, Kentucky and Memphis. He’s the highest ranked college basketball prospect to choose an HBCU in the era of online recruiting databases (circa 2007).

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

I want to thank Coach Cal and Coach KP of University of Kentucky Coach Cronin of UCLA and coach Hardaway of Memphis for considering me.
