Tuesday, June 15th, Adrian Samuels (University School of Nashville) earned a Fisk University offer.  Fisk Head Coach Kenny Anderson continues to put his stamp on the NAIA basketball program.  This upcoming fall Fisk returns to the GCAC (Gulf Coast Athletic Conference), a governing body they participated in from 2010 to 2014 before going independent. 

“We are really excited about returning to the GCAC as a member. Membership in the GCAC allows our student athletes the opportunities to compete with familiar institutions and create friendly competitive rivalries on the court, field, track, and in the classrooms,” said Fisk Athletic Director Larry Glover. “We look forward to working with the other GCAC members in helping this conference excel in all sponsored sports starting in the Fall of 2021.”  The conference games will take Coach Anderson and the Fisk Bulldogs around the southeast.  With this expanded footprint, perhaps Fisk can recruit more consistently in the gulf states.  Conference colleges are based in the following cities: Jacksonville, New Orleans, Little Rock, Holly Springs and Tougaloo, Mississippi and Talladega.
