Ebony magazine reported that radio personality Tom Joyner, also known as "The Fly Jock," has offered Rachel Jeantel, a full scholarship to any Historically Black College or University she chooses.

The website Joyner founded, BlackAmericaWeb.com, confirmed the news.

Rachel Jeantel is the friend of Trayvon Martin who spoke to him shortly before he was murdered.

Jeantel spoke to Joyner on his radio show Tuesday morning. He said to her: "If you want to graduate from high school and go to an HBCU, even if it's not in Florida but especially Florida, like Florida Memorial, Edward Waters or FAMU, if you want to do that, I want to help you do that. I will help you get tutors to get you out of high school, tutors to help you pass the SAT and I will give you a full ride scholarship to any HBCU you'd like."

Tonight, July 16, Tom Joyner heads to CNN to talk with evening talk show host Piers Morgan.
