TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – As graduation gets underway at The University of Alabama this weekend, a total of 83 Crimson Tide student-athletes will celebrate earning their degrees during the spring semester.
The 83 University of Alabama student-athletes are slated to earn 86 undergraduate and graduate degrees this weekend. The Tide’s tally includes two NCAA champions, 11 All-Americans and four CSC Academic All-Americans.
This year’s spring graduates also include student-athletes who were part of CFP National Championship squads and multiple Southeastern Conference Championships in men’s and women’s cross country, football, gymnastics, men’s basketball, soccer and softball.
Additionally, NCAA Champions Bobby Colantonio Jr. (men’s track and field) and Kensey McMahon (women’s swimming and diving), and NFCA Pitcher of the Year Montana Fouts (softball) helped highlight the Crimson Tide’s May graduates.
Two-time CFP National Champion Ronnie Harrison, who just completed his fifth season in the NFL, and former MLB pitcher Adam Morgan returned to Tuscaloosa to receive their diploma after earning degrees this spring.
Among the Crimson Tide’s 86 degrees, there are 55 bachelor’s and 31 master’s, with men’s basketball’s Adam Cottrell and rowing’s Gianna Rucki coming away with a pair of degrees. Each took advantage of the University’s Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP), allowing them to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree, concurrently. Additionally, women’s swimming and diving’s Jocelyn Fisher took home a pair of undergraduate degrees this spring.
