Greivis Vasquez graduates


Greivis Vasquez left last week's pre-draft workouts in Chicago so he could return to College Park for his graduation ceremonies. Comcast SportsNet was there to capture some of the footage. Sadly, he seems to have made it across the stage without a single shimmy.

Hopefully the Suns don't draft him. He may have some trouble there if you get what I mean....

With all the issues that Maryland has had with academics and their basketball team, it is nice to see him graduate (as opposed to "leaving the school"). Good job Greivis!

Agreed. Even as a Terp, it was always a bit unsettling how few guys we graduated (although we have some really upstanding folks in other sports - Stammler and Foxworth, for example). So congrats to Vasquez, one of most confounding, passsionate and talented students to ever represent our school.

During his tenure, Vasquez would drive me crazy at with his play. This past year was different and he has matured a lot. The young man did what a student athlete is supposed to do. Vasquez is the perfect example why high schoolers should not go directly to the NBA. Anyway, it's obvious he is very proud of his family and they are proud of him. Congrat Grevis and good luck with the NBA.

Did Hayes and/or Landon graduate?

John Hollinger project Greivis to be the 10th best rookie of this draft class. If the Wiz can get him at 30 or 35, that'd be huge. He could be a great replacement for Arenas if we can move Gil's contract.

Congrats on graduating!

@JEp1 I saw Hayes and Burney at graduation. Didn't see Milbourne so I don't know about him. But it was a huge graduation.

Didn't Ray Lewis finish his undergraduate through the University of Maryland?
