Carmelo Anthony is calling for more top prospects to attend historically black universities when selecting schools to play at. Melo said quote, “All it takes is one person to change history. It changes college sports because you have a young black kid who is at the top of his game who decided to go to a black university.” Hear what Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have to say about the idea of top prospects attending historically black universities.

  1. All those billions white schools make off our talent would go to black schools and the black community if we just stick to our schools. They didn’t even want us in their schools in our grandparents younger years

  2. HBCU's getting top notch black athletes will make them more competitive, but it won't take them too far. it's more to sports than just athletes. You need a top notch coaching staff and administration to make it all work. Most HBCUs have subpar coaching and the teams in general look basic, undisciplined, and unorganized compared to the other D1 schools, which is why they always get ran by those schools. That's where most of the problem lies. Any school would be more competitive if they had top notch athletes, but who has the coaching staff to take them far?

  3. So if more athletes go to HBCU's what's the point. Segregate yourself from the real world? Less opportunity? Become radicalized against America? What? Many of these all star prospects are coming from poor crumby places and have a chance to go to Alabama, LSU, Clemson, Ohio State, but you want them to go to Grambling, Savannah State, or SC State to make you feel better. Not happening. Their own mama's wouldn't tell them to do that.

  4. I think ultimately it's about evening the playing field and like Shannon and many others have said the PWI( predominately white institutions) really don't treat black players fair unless you're a star and even then outside of the season you're really an average student. Many of the white students are very disrespectful towards to students of color who don't play sports that black athletes are aware of too. Another point that not mentioned is many of the black parents must also be willing to sacrifice a paycheck from these PWI's and allow their children to attend these schools and get something out of it. We'll just have to see.

  5. Everybody wants to keep saying that it only takes one when it comes to the top talented black players in high school going to historically black colleges that would fuel a new wave of top talent going to smaller historically black colleges. This would be great but I do not believe that it only takes one. For example Brandon Jennings if you know of him when he got out of high school instead of going to college he chose to go overseas and become a professional basketball player at 18 as opposed to going to college. Everybody thought that this is going to be the next new wave of how players go from high school one year after high school and then go into the NBA. As you can see not very many top talented guys chose to not go to college then go to the NBA. It is going to take more than one in different places to spread out the talent pool competition an inside look at these HBCU athletic programs that these top players will be going to.

  6. This would help a lot. Stop going to Kentucky, Alabama, Texas, Georgia etc. And make sure it is known you're not choosing those schools because the politicians in those states don't have your best interests at heart.

  7. NCAA is literally the legalization of slavery all over again. White men profiting from black kids without giving a dime but "hope" they'll get drafted Lololol. Cmon man. Don't be stupid

  8. Crazy how one decision can affect the rest of your life… imagine if he went to Miami… probably would have been drafted by different team, probably never won Super Bowls, probably never a hall of famer and not the Sharpe we know today !!🙏

  9. It might not be the top 10 or so, but if the HBCUs could get some solid 3 or 4 star players and those teams can make a solid run in the tourney. With those players being 1st round picks. Then the schools like Howard, NC A&T, NC Central would get more talent.

    How do you think schools like Butler and Gonzaga are ranked consistently now?

  10. It's not segregation…white folks are welcome to apply to HBCUs as well. Why aren't you telling them to do that Skip???? Why is it always a problem when black people want to support their own? White folks have been doing it since existence.

  11. HBCU Baby!! Can’t beat the feeling of seeing others that look like you and professors that are successful and can be mentors. Elizabeth City State University 2004! Viking Pride!

  12. Prospects doing that would bring a lot of money into the hbcus. If you imagine an hbcu with the top prospects in the country and make a run in the tournament they would get attention and future prospects would follow. Plus they can stuff that stats and look good 🤷🏾‍♂️. Plus all the stallions at these schools 😋

  13. Why stop at electing to not attend PWIs (Predominantly White Institution) and instead attend HBCUs? Why not attend HBCUs AND start our pro leagues? Because if you elect to not attend a PWI for your college years yet you still “attend” a PWOI (Predominantly White Owned Institution) for your pro years, you’re essentially only “moving the needle” just a little bit.

  14. Shocked they didn’t address the elephant in the room and why so many top prospects don’t go Historically Black Colleges….there ain’t no boosters paying families and coaches to come to their schools. The institution of slavery for “student athletes” is still alive and well unfortunately in the NCAA, the powerhouse schools can still blind these kids under the table a bit at this point.

  15. HOF – Aneas William's, Southern University. Let's be honesy here, the REAL issue and topic is money. Money (TV, advertising, marketing, sports betting, etc.) ALWAYS follows the talent. Although they won't and don't admit it, most of the "Tier 1" conferences and schools are that now only because of integration and what the black athletes brought to them. Most didn't really care to integrate until it became a revenue generator. I would love to see the majority of top black athletes attend an HBCU. Those schools and conference would come to power and prominence just like the others. The so called "Tier 1" schools would become Tier 2 or less over time. This is not to take away from any great white athletes either. They are more than welcome to attend HBCUs! I look forward to the light bulb going off in these young athlete's and finally taking control of the power and calling the shots. – SU Grad '91.

  16. Well let's be HONEST. They started paying athletes ( so called black men) to make them stop going to HBCU. If your from the so called hood or ghetto you know what I mean. You love your JSU, GSU,SU,TSU, etc…. battle of the bands!!! They have to pay to make sure the best doesn't go! Imagine the SWAC always winning. Who the so called Whites gone cheer for? Its obvious that its personal (racial)
