Top Basketball Recruit Mikey Williams Drops His Top Ten List of Colleges & It Includes Several HBCUs!

Top Basketball Recruit Mikey Williams Drops His Top Ten List of Colleges & It Includes Several HBCUs!
Posted By: Will Moss on July 23, 2020

The internet has been buzzing ever since famed high school basketball recruit Mikey Williams mentioned that he was interested in attending an HBCU.

Many fans did not realize that the athletic phenom comes from a family of HBCU alums. His mother attended Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, which has many Hampton grads cheering for their alma-mater to recruit the star athlete.

Williams posted on twitter just hours ago his top ten list of colleges that he would likely play for, and there were at least 4 HBCUs on his list, including Hampton University, North Carolina Central University, Alabama State University, and Tennessee State University.



There could be more but don't blame us for not recognizing a few of the logos :).

I myself am a Hampton University graduate and I'd love to see Williams attend our "Home By The Sea", but anywhere he goes, if he sets a good example for other young black men coming behind him, he will have my support. I'd like to see him do well, and attend an HBCU, but just like I never put that requirement on my on kids, I can only cheer him on in his future success.

What do you think?

Here is Mikey's tweet:
