Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 268: Makur Maker to Howard + College Hoops Programs on the Rise

It’s Monday and after a long holiday weekend, Aaron returns with an all new Aaron Torres Podcast. He opens the show by discussing Makur Maker’s decision to attend Howard and why he still has some questions about the decision, before transitioning to some reader mail. Here is a full rundown of Monday’s show:

Makur Maker commits to Howard: It was the news that shook up the entire college hoops world: Makur Maker’s decision to commit to Howard. Aaron explains why this is great for both Howard and all HBCU’s, but also has real questions as to if Maker ever makes it to campus. Also, Aaron explains why, if Maker does go to college, he is putting himself at major risk, and why there are some real downsides to the decision. Also, will more high-profile players choose HBCU’s going forward?

College Basketball Programs on the Rise: Next up, Aaron answers a listener question about college hoops programs on the rise. He explains why he expects big things both from Alabama and Arkansas in the SEC, and why UConn could get back to elite status in the Big East. Also, one Big Ten program that could be competing with the big boys before long.
