Tiders Earn Degrees

The return of all-star linebacker Saleem Rasheed will be one of the highlights of Monday's graduation ceremonies at The University of Alabama.  A total of 81 student-athletes are scheduled to receive their degrees in two graduation ceremonies at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.  Rasheed will be part of the 9 a.m. grazduation .

Saleem Rasheed passed up his senior year of football eligibility to enter the NFL draft and is now playing professional football. An honor student in his playing days, the Birmingham native had been ahead of pace to earn his degree before leaving The University. He had pledged to return and earn his degree and Monday he makes good on that promise.

A total of 26 football student-athletes will receive their degrees, including four– Atokie Boman , Paul Hogan, Derek Sanders and Tyler Watts–who completed eligibility earlier and who will receive their graduate degrees.

Graduating players who will participate in football this fall are fullback Nathan Cox (Finance), offensive linemen Danny Martz (Criminal Justice) and Evan Mathis (Marketing) and linebacker Cornelius Wortham (General Health Studies).

In addition, three members of the Crimson Tide men's basketball team, Antoine Pettway , Demetrius Smith and Emmett Thomas, will also receive their degree.
