Chris Paul helping HBCU students vote


Chris Paul drew some attention during his time in the NBA's restart bubble for representing historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) with what he wore to games. It turns out that was just a glimpse of his support for the schools.

Paul has enrolled at Winston Salem State University in North Carolina, where both of his parents attended. The 10-time All-Star revealed the news on Friday's episode of 'First Take' on ESPN.

That's not it, either. Paul is working with other NBA players to get HBCU students around the country to the polls for this November's election.

"We are providing transportation to HBCU students to get the polls so we are working on that now," Paul said.

As for which schools could be part of the program, it sounds like that has yet to be determined. But Paul did give a nod to D.C.'s Howard University in the bubble with an arrival outfit and Howard Bison shoes on the court.

Depending on which HBCUs Paul and his partners target for voter mobilization, it could have a real effect on the election. North Carolina, where WSSU is located, is a swing state.
