Gamecock great Tori Gurley says diploma honors his mother
A total of 104 South Carolina athletes will be walking at graduation this weekend.
Most are current students, but several are part of the Carolina Degree Completion program, often used by athletes to finish up studies after trying their hand at professional sports.
That group includes baseball’s Blake Cooper, who played in the Cubs organization, football’s Victor Hampton and Tori Gurley, and men’s soccer’s Bradlee Baladez, who played three professional seasons.
A total of 90 student-athletes were named to the SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll this year, while 78 earned a spot on the Winter Honor Roll.
