HBCU Scholarship Offers Scholarship To The Former University Of Florida Football Recruit Who Lost His Scholarship After Posting A Video Saying The N-Word

The former University of Florida quarterback recruit who gained notoriety for rhyming the n-word was offered a new scholarship offer from an HBCU.

Marcus Stokes revealed on Tuesday (January 24) that Albany State University had offered him a scholarship.  In case you missed it, Stokes lost his scholarship to the University of Florida in November due to posting a video online in which he used the n-word while rapping.

He tweets,” Blessed to receive my first HBCU offer to play at Albany State University!”

Later, the four-star recruit expressed regret for his behavior, calling it “hurtful and offensive to many people,” but that wasn’t enough, and his scholarship was finally withdrawn. Stokes, one of the nation’s greatest high school quarterbacks, has led Nease High School for several seasons.

Stokes hasn’t committed at this moment. According to 247Sports, he is still shopping around and planning to West Florida. He is ranked the 24th quarterback per 247Sports for the class of 2023.
