Gabby Douglas — 16-Year-Old Recruited HARD By Black College

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

We’ve learned … Spelman — an all-girl college in Georgia — wants Gabby in a bad way … 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.

which she acknowledges the school would LOVE to get its hands on the gold medal winner:

“A young woman who has demonstrated the drive and discipline needed to achieve world-class excellence is likely to have what it takes to be successful at Spelman, and we would welcome her interest in the college.”

Spelman is no joke … both Martin Luther King Jr. and Bill Cosby have daughters who attended S.C.
