Berman, Mark, The Roanoke Times (Roanoke, VA)

Radford men's basketball was at 64 percent, with Radford's other teams ranging from 69 percent to 100 percent.

VMI football was at 58 percent and men's basketball 69 percent. VMI's other teams ranged from 47 percent (wrestling) to 100 percent.

Nationally, the GSR for Division I teams in all sports for those four freshman classes was 80 percent, matching last year's record high. For men's basketball and FBS football, it was 68 percent.

The federal graduation rates were also released Thursday:
