Wednesday links — List of grads, chat reminder, and more

University of Washington’s graduation ceremonies will be held Saturday, and the school has released the list of 18 players who will be participating.

The list includes some players with no more eligibility, such as Jake Locker, and a few others with eligibility left, such as Chris Polk. As CoachSark’s site mentions in the list, players can walk if they are close enough that they will graduate in the fall. This is almost certainly the case for players who will be returning for another season, that they will finish up in the fall. And obviously in the case of Polk, who will be a junior in terms of eligibility in 2011, it’s one more reason to think he’s gone after the 2011 season and headed to the NFL.

This list indicates that UW figures to again fare well when the NCAA releases its next Graduation Success Rate report. UW was second among all Pac-10 football programs in the GSR last y ear.

Here’s info on the ceremony, which will be held at Husky Stadium — the last in Husky Stadium as students know it as it will undergo a renovation beginning in November.
