You are correct. HBCU's have been recruiting an increasing number...

of white players in many sports for quite some time. Howard, as a result of its location, has been a magnet for international students, and over the past several decades a growing number of white students/athletes are among the student body. BTW, go look at many of the HBCU baseball, tennis, golf, etc., teams and see how many white athletes are on those rosters. Schools like Howard, Bethune Cookman, Central State (Ohio), Tennessee State, Maryland Eastern Shore, etc., have recruited a number of white players on many of their various sports rosters. Those who doubt may want to visit an HBCU game in numerous sports to see first hand. For football, the battle of the bands is quite enjoyable. It is the 21st century! As an anecdotal example, please see this article from 2015 below.
