Guess what y’all!? Gabrielle Douglas may soon be a part of the great City of Atlanta!!
The 16 year old Olympic stand out is reportedly being heavily recruited by Atlanta’s very own HBCU Spelman College.
Beverly Daniel Tatum, Spelman’s president, flew out to London recently to make sure Gabby knew that one of the most prestigious black universities in the country had it’s eye on her!

According to TMZ, Gabby’s Spelman gift bag contained a congratulatory note, school t-shirt and a CD containing a song produced by the college.
Could Spelman be in the cards for Gabrielle Douglas?
If Twitter is any indication, then all signs point to “yes”!
Gabby recently “retweeted” one of her favorite actresses, Nina Dobrev (of The Vampire Diaries), who was once a former artistic and rhythmic gymnast, herself.
Dobrev, a proud Atlanta transplant, heard about Gabby’s Spelman connection and offered to show her around town should she choose to attend.
After hearing that 16-year-old U.S. gymnast Gabby Douglas was a huge fan of their show, the entire cast of The Vampire Diaries made her a video congratulating her on her team and individual all-around golds and wishing her and her teammate, Aly Raisman, good luck in event finals.
If Oprah has anything to do with it, I’m sure Gabby will choose Spelman…
