Report: Gabby Douglas Recruited by Spelman College

16-year-old Gabby Douglas is officially being recruited by one of the most prestigious black universities in the country — Spelman College. TMZ reports that the school president has even flown to London to get a leg up on the competition.

Spelman — an all-girl college in Georgia — wants Gabby and sources at the University tell us the Team USA gymnastics superstar has become the number 1 recruit by far.

In fact, the President of Spelman, Beverly Daniel Tatum, went out to London and made sure Gabby got a Spelman gift bag, containing a congratulatory note, school t-shirt and a CD containing a song produced by the college.
