Fifteen Alabama football players earned their degrees this week, four of whom have received their master’s degrees.
The graduates are led by All-Americans Jonah Williams and SEC Championship Game hero Jalen Hurts who earned their degrees in just three years. Also matching this feat is redshirt sophomore tight end Miller Forristall.
Other Tide players earning bachelor’s degrees this week are Isaiah Buggs, Lester Cotton, Damien Harris, Anfernee Jennings, Elliot Baker, 2016-17 player Jamar King, and multi-year walk-ons Donavan Mosley and Ryan Parris.
Ross Pierschbacher, Joshua Casher, Derek Kief, and Christian Miller were awarded with master’s degrees.
Donta Hall and Dazon Ingram represent the graduating basketball players. Hall is in his final season for the Tide while redshirt junior Ingram has one season of eligibility remaining after the current campaign.
