Makur, 20, won’t sign with an agent to keep open the option of returning to Howard for his sophomore year, sources said.
Makur has shown himself to be a highly skilled 6-foot-11 forward with the ability to play on the perimeter. Makur played only two games for the Bison last season because of a groin injury. In those two games, Makur averaged 11.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists.
The university shut down the remainder of the team’s season because of COVID-19 issues in early January.
Makur was the No. 16 high school recruit in the ESPN Top 100 upon committing to Howard over UCLA and Kentucky. A native of Sudan, he also spent time in Australia before moving to the United States for high school.
