No, I hate the idea that they’re treated unfairly at P5 schools. I’m also tired of hearing about how important academics are when kids are only going to be in school for a year. I’m also annoyed bc I mentioned other P5 schools have been preaching about this for decades and were constantly ignored.
Lol, what’s wrong with the guy going to Howard and stating academics was a driver in that decision?

Jemele Hill wrote an article about this about a yr ago pushing the idea recruits should go to HBCUs bc they weren’t “appreciated” by P5. IDC where he goes, I’m just tired of hearing about how the athletes are “exploited” when they live better than any other student. And I don’t have a problem with them actually having those perks, but people need to stop acting like they don’t exist.
Come on, you know schools like Duke, Vandy, ND, etc do exploit these kids. The student body looks nothing like them.

How are they “exploited?” Just bc the student body doesn’t look like them? They get free education at a prestigious university. That’s not to mention other things like: priority scheduling, free tutors, p*ssy, and parties. I think they should get paid for the use of their likeness in media, but let’s not act like they’re suffering during their stay in college.

Exploited doesn’t mean suffering.

High profile visits help with recruting


Christopher and Maker both made their way to the school, but Christopher decided to go to Arizona State. Many speculated that these top recruits were flirting with the idea of attending HBCUs simply for “clout.”

But even if that was the case, Howard has benefited from it. Jordan Wood, an incoming freshman from Texas, said he hadn’t heard much about HU before Christopher’s visit.




Jordan Wood, Zach Kent may be two hoopers to watch at HBCUs this season
The players, who are both white, share why they chose to attend historically black colleges

What? It’s true. I don’t mind like the one & done rule and they should be paid for their likeness. However, they’re hardly “exploited” in getting free tuition and all of the other aforementioned perks.
