ATLANTA--Twenty-three current and former Georgia State student-athletes participated in the University's Fall Commencement, held Wednesday at the Georgia Dome.
Among the GSU graduates are current basketball players Chan Harris and Jamar Taylor, both of whom completed their undergraduate degrees in August and are now playing their final season while enrolled in graduate school, as well as baseball players Daniel Blaustein and Jonathan Kolowich, who will compete for the Panthers this spring as grad students.
Six members of the Panther football team have graduated in linebacker Michael Hall, linebacker Cliff Ibarrondo, center Ben Jacoby, safety Brandon Jones, offensive lineman Kevin Thompson and tight end/long snapper Bailey Woods. Woods actually earned a graduate degree after previously graduating from Auburn before transferring to GSU. Hall completed his undergraduate degree in August and played this fall as a grad student.
Volleyball standout Vineece Verdun earned her degree, one day before she was named to the Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-America third team. Verdun will enroll in law school at Duke University next fall.
