Purdue basketball had five seniors graduate from the university this weekend. Vince Edwards, Isaac Haas, P.J. Thompson, Dakota Mathias and Jacquil Taylor all earned degrees and participated in commencement ceremonies.
Purdue basketball’s Twitter account posted a photo of the five players in their caps and gowns.
Purdue basketball celebrates 5 graduating seniors
Proud to add them to the #Purdue Basketball family.
All 5 earned their degrees in four years while playing in 4 NCAA Tournaments and winning 104 games.

The other four will chase professional basketball careers. Haas and Edwards will likely get shots on NBA teams in the 2018 summer league, but it’s unlikely that either will get drafted.
The group of five seniors helped Purdue to a 30-7 record during the 2017-18 season. The Boilermakers finished in second place in the Big Ten and lost against Texas Tech in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament.
