Jodie Meeks -- a UK grad

05/08/2014 06:31 PM

It may have taken him five summers, but former Cat, Jodie Meeks, finished off his undergraduate studies at the University of Kentucky. The current NBA free-agent has been coming back to Lexington since he declared for the NBA Draft in 2009 to get his marketing degree.

Meeks is coming off, arguably, his best individual season. In Kobe Bryant’s absence, Meeks averaged 16 points per game this past season with the Los Angeles Lakers. Even though he’s going into the off-season as a free-agent and has much on his plate, Jodie never wavered on his commitment in the classroom.

I had a chance to catch up with Jodie at today’s press conference.
