CLEMSON, S.C. – A total of 20 Clemson student-athletes, spirit squad members and athletic support students are set to earn degrees during Clemson University’s commencement ceremony on Friday in Littlejohn Coliseum.

Representatives from 11 programs completed their degrees, which includes nine individuals who earned master’s degrees. Matt Bockhorst (MBA) and Will Swinney (MBA) were both semifinalists for the Campbell Trophy and earned National Championships in 2018 with the football program. Roje Stona graduates with multiple All-America and All-ACC honors in throws, while Hal Hershfelt has been a two-time All-ACC performer on the pitch. Geoffrey Gilbert earned his degree less than a month after being signed by the Yankees as well. Isaiah Battle and Kyle Wilkie earned their degrees as part of the Tiger Trust program after careers in professional football and baseball, respectively.

The Tiger Trust program, established in the 1980s, provides an opportunity for all student-athletes who have exhausted athletic eligibility or left early for a professional opportunity to retu­­­­­­rn to Clemson to earn their undergraduate degree if they left the university in good standing.
