Another Talented Recruit Chooses to Take Her Talents to An HBCU - This Time Morgan State!
Posted By: Will Moss on July 20, 2020 |
Norman North rising senior Fatima Black locked in her college commitment Monday.
Black is taking her talents to Division I program Morgan State, based in Baltimore, Maryland, and member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
Morgan State is a historically Black research university, which the North standout cited as a reason for her commitment to the Bears.
"I am very proud to announce that I am participating in the Athlete to HBCU movement!" Fatima Black wrote in a note posted to her Twitter account. "I have been overwhelmed with the familial love and welcoming home to Morgan State.
I encourage all my fellow athletes to seriously take notice of HBCU athletics and education!"
Black had an exceptional junior season, where she became an integral part to the Timberwolves' success.
North went 17-9 last season and exited the postseason with a 42-36 loss to Putnam City West in an area-round elimination game.
Black added to a strong North frontcourt that had the athletes and shooters to stretch the floor beyond the post.
She was named the team's most improved player by the program for her 2019-20 season efforts. Her role is likely to further increase with the departure of fellow forward Jessika Evans this coming season.
