Howard Recruits Former Purdue Basketball Starter Nojel Eastern

On Thursday, Howard University successfully recruited former Purdue basketball starter Nojel Eastern, “a 6-foot-7 wing with 104 games of Big Ten experience,” reported CBS Sports.

Though Eastern will likely need an NCAA waiver to be eligible for the 2020-21 Nojelseason, CBS Sports described him as a “huge pickup” for Howard coach Kenneth Blakeney, who is entering his second season at Howard, an HBCU.

The announcement comes after five-star prospect Makur Maker also committed to Howard over other offers, suggesting that “high-caliber players are taking HBCU options seriously in the recruiting process,” CBS added.
