Miami basketball player Anthony Lawrence Jr. had the line of the day:
“They all better be at the game on Wednesday,” Lawrence said, hoping students would show up to his team’s 7 p.m. date with Wake Forest.
Aubrey Drake Graham, better known by his middle name, caused a College GameDay redux on campus Monday when he filmed part of the video for his song “God’s Plan.” Hundreds of students, if not several thousand, flocked to the student center to catch a glimpse.
Drake, wearing a black UM hoodie, was shown throwing up the ‘U’ to the fans.
According to UM’s student newspaper, The Miami Hurricane, he also presented a $50,000 scholarship check to a student outside UM’s Frost School of Music. Josh Friedman, a senior vice president for development and alumni relations, thanked the rapper in a tweet.
