The Grambling State baseball team has made history with the signing of Class of 2023 recruit Martavius Thomas, the highest-rated baseball player to sign with an HBCU.
“I wanted to start my own dynasty and bring some love to HBCU baseball,” said Thomas in response to his decision to commit to Grambling State.
Thomas previously committed to Arkansas before his sophomore year of high school before flipping to Grambling State.
