Marcus Stokes is getting another shot.
The four-star QB was originally committed to Florida but had his offer rescinded due to a video of him singing the N-word. Months later, he is now receiving an offer from the HBCU program Albany State.
At the time of the video of him singing the racial slur, Stokes apologized for his actions and said he understood Florida’s decision.
“I deeply apologize for the words in the song that I chose to say,” read part of Stokes’ statement. “…I fully accept the consequences for my actions and I respect the University of Florida’s decision to withdraw my scholarship offer to play football.”
Most Power Five teams backed off on recruiting Stokes, but he has received offers from other levels. On Tuesday, Stokes tweeted that he had received a new scholarship offer from Albany State, a Division II HBCU program.
Stokes is coming off a senior season in which he completed 136 of 248 pass attempts for 1,867 yards with 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
He also carried the ball 118 times for a team-high 582 yards and 13 more scores.GOOGLE NEWS.
