According to Lakers reporter, Mike Trudell, former UK Basketball player, Jodie Meeks, will graduate from Kentucky on May 10th with a marketing degree.
Meeks just finished up his 2nd season in Los Angeles by averaging 15 points while starting in 70 of the 77 games he played in for the Lakers. The shooting guard is now a free agent and not sure if he's re-signing with the Lakers during the off-season.
Meeks left after his Junior season at UK and has been returning to Lexington during the summer months to take courses he needed to graduate. He's hoping to start a business of his own after his basketball career comes to an end.
Meeks said when he left UK early, he made a promise to himself and his parents to go back and get the degree so he would be prepared for the rest of his life whenever his professional career ended. His father works for Microsoft and his mother is a book keeper at a school in Atlanta.
