    The NFL Draft is just around the corner and everyone knows about Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson among other top prospects from other NCAA Division 1 Powerhouses but what about those who fly under the radar that are just as talented yet not as known especially those who excelled at History Black Colleges and Unviversities? We will find out which HBCU Prospects have a great chance to move up in the draft and some that have the potential to be a steal for some teams with Taber J Small who writes a weekly scouting report on some of the nations top Black College Football NFL Draft prospects and of the Black College Football All Star Game. 
    Now that the College basketball season is over, who had the better tournament, the men or women? Who was more dominant in winning the National Championship Kentucky or Baylor and where does Baylor's undefeated season compare with other undefeated women's basketball teams like UCONN and Texas and other undefeated teams in sports?
