    Makur Maker made history on Friday when he pledged to Howard University, becoming the highest-ranked prospect to commit to a historically Black college or university in recent memory.

    Assuming the 6-foot-11 Maker suits up at Howard for the 2020-21 season, he will be showcased against a slew of big-name opponents in the non-conference.

    Here is Howard’s non-conference schedule.

    Villanova – Nov 3rd
    N.C. State – Nov 15th
    Harvard – Nov 24th
    Yale – Dec 4th
    Hampton – Dec 7th (home)
    UPenn – Dec 23rd
    Northwestern- Dec 29th
    Notre Dame – Jan 18th MLK (home)

    Maker is due to discuss his commitment on ESPN’s platforms on Thursday.
