North Carolina A&T has arguably the best all-around player in MEAC Basketball in point guard Kameron Langley, a rising senior quality player.
Recency Bias would suggest this is the weirdest college basketball offseason ever. Each basketball offseason has its uniqueness. None of the offseasons have come with the uncertainty that this one has, which makes this the craziest offseason ever. MEAC Basketball has always been one of the premier conferences for the HBCU’s in the NCAA. The Pandemic has wreaked havoc on the conference and has led to many schools choosing to go to a more financially stable conference.
The conference has already seen Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M, Hampton, and Savannah State leave the conference. The biggest blow may have perhaps been when one of the conference powers the North Carolina A&T Aggies announced that they would be leaving the conference to join the Big South starting in the 2021-2022 season. The MEAC now has a total of eight member schools in Maryland Eastern Shore, Coppin State, North Carolina Central, Norfolk State, Morgan State, Delaware State, South Carolina State, Howard will be the full-time members of the MEAC after the 2021-2022 season.
Those that pay attention to the sports news in the world, it has shown that HBCU’s are making a huge resurgence with Howard landing five-star Makur Maker and 2023 five-star Mikey Williams having five HBCU schools in his final 10. The good star players choosing to take their talents to the HBCU arena is going to make the game better and provide those schools with much-needed exposure and extra money to operate. It will overall be good for basketball and will give the schools extra publicity when these players end up playing in the NBA or some professional circuit throughout the world.
North Carolina A&T has one of the most unknown players in the country, who also happens to be one of the better point guards in the country as well. Kameron Langley decided to return for his senior year in Greensboro and the hope is to finally get over the top and take down the conference powerhouse the North Carolina Central Eagles. Head Coach Willie Jones enters his first full year as the head coach of the Aggies and Langley returning was a huge shot in the arm for the program.
