TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - More than 30 University of Alabama student-athletes are slated to receive their degrees Saturday when UA holds its winter commencement at Coleman Coliseum.
There will be 11 winter graduates on hand when the Crimson Tide football team competes in the BCS National Championship Game Monday, January 7, against Notre Dame in Miami. The list includes: Kenny Bell, Christopher Bonds, Quinton Dial, All-American D.J. Fluker, All-American Barrett Jones, Kevin Norwood, All-American Chance Warmack, Ranzell Watkins, All-Southeastern Conference Jesse Williams, Kellen Williams and Nicholas Williams.
Six former members of the football squad will also graduate this semester, including: Mark Holt, Kendall Kelly, James Lowery, Corey McCarron, Morgan Oglive and William Strickland.
All-American Ashley Sledge of the gymnastics team will graduate Saturday, along with two-time NCAA Champion Geralen Stack-Eaton. Ben Eblen and Moussa Gueye of the men’s basketball team will also graduate on Saturday. All-SEC softball player Kendall Dawson will also take home a degree, along with baseball’s Jimmy Nelson.
Oliver Basse and Andrew Reeves of the swimming and diving team will graduate Saturday. Cross country and track & field graduates include Camilla Armstead, Elsbeth Denton, Nicholas Hayes, Kyle Hester, Brittany Hines, Carison Kemei and Jordan Myers.
Saturday's ceremonies will be broadcast live over the Internet. The webcast will be archived on UA's Web site, www.ua.edu, and will be available for viewing for approximately 30 days following the ceremony.

Great news... congrats to the graduates and also nice to see Kendall Kelly was able to get his degree as well.
This. Glad to see this man get through. Roll Tide!
So all-told, how many EE spots does this give us? Feel like we should know the inputs now assuming Fluker, Lacy, Milliner go pro and given 82 or so on scholarship, now that we have graduates as well.
This.....x2!!! Roll Tide to all these grads!
Great to see Kendall Kelly!
In an effort to understand scholarship #s, when a football player actually graduates like those mentioned in this thread(9) does that reduce the # from the 85 limit thus 76? I.e Kenny Bell ,can he play but not against the 85 #limit.
