Kobe Surprises Boston College Class

In a photo taken by a student and provided by Boston College, Boston College professor Nick Nugent and Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant pose for a photo Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, at Nugent's international marketing class at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Mass. Boston College says Bryant arrived shortly after the class began and stayed for two hours until it was over. Nugent says Bryant's visit was not planned.

A Boston College professor says he used Kobe Bryant as an example in his first international marketing class of the semester - and then the Lakers star walked into the class and started taking notes.

Boston College says Bryant arrived shortly after the class began Thursday night and stayed for two hours until it was over. Professor Nick Nugent says Bryant's visit was not planned.

Bryant told students that he loves to learn and is interested in international marketing.

He was in the area for the Lakers' Friday night game against the Celtics, but did not play as he recovers from a left knee fracture.

Bryant did not attend college after going to the NBA directly from high school in suburban Philadelphia.
