Who will be HBCU’s Next 5 ⭐ recruit?

Will there be another 5-star player who decides to play at an HBCU over a major Power 5 school?

Before Travis Hunter flipped the Florida State hat to the ground, Kayvon Thibodeaux made a visit to an HBCU that opened many eyes. Thibodeaux was a highly rated five star prospect who visited with FAMU. The move was a different one, that had people talking. Thibodaux composite score was a 99 to be later on 3 years later number one overall draft pick selected 5th by the New York Giants.

Coach Willie Simmons was the coach that was trying to recruit Thibodeaux which was at the time the first five star to ever recruit a HBCU.

Then December 15th, 2021, Travis Hunter broke that curse by signing with Deion Sanders and Jackson State which composite score at that time was 100%. Many believe that Travis Hunter will be a high draft pick in the 2025 draft class at cornerback out of the University of Colorado.

It may not be this year, but next year it maybe another 5-star willing to stay and make history as maybe being number one overall pick like Ed Too Tall Jones did 50 years ago out of Tennessee State University.
