Kelvin Grady Leaves Michigan Basketball Program

Sad, I really liked Grady. Sure, he could be a defensive liability, but dude could definitely handle the rock (and shoot it some, too). It’s going to be an interesting situation in the backcourt next year, with all of Michigan’s point guards leaving. AD release:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – University of Michigan men’s basketball coach John Beilein announced Thursday (April 2) guard Kelvin Grady (Grand Rapids, Mich./East Grand Rapids HS) has made the decision to leave the Wolverines basketball program and transfer to another school. Grady has not yet made a decision on which school he will attend.

“Kelvin has asked for his release from the program and we will grant that to him,” said Beilein. “Over the last two years, he has been a positive influence in helping build the foundation of our program. He is a wonderful young man on and off the floor. We wish him nothing but success in the future.”

“It’s been a wonderful experience both as a student and as a player here at the University of Michigan, but I feel I need a fresh start,” said Grady. “I love this university and want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and everyone else who has supported me over the past two years. However, I have decided to explore other academic and playing opportunities at this time.”

In two seasons in Ann Arbor, Grady played in 64 games with 33 starts. He averaged 4.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for the Maize and Blue.

    Sure he transfered. Just like Denard Robinson. Cry wolf.

    What? This is easily-found information on MGoBlue or UMHoops… and it’s not April Fool’s Day anymore.

    uh yeah Bob, this isn’t an April fools joke. Kelvin is good as gone. Now the question is, does Beilein still try to pick up a 2009 or book the scholi for a 2010?

    Thanks for pointing that out. Let me point out something too. Sarcasm!!

    Sad, but not surprised. Told my wife this was going to happen during the season after his minutes evaporated.

    He’ll be a good point for someone. I still think he looks a lot like Iverson.
