Clemson, SC-Unanimous first-team All-American Gaines Adams is one of 10 football players who will graduate from Clemson University on Thursday morning during ceremonies at Littlejohn Coliseum. The festivities begin at 11:00 AM.


Other members of the Clemson team who will be participating in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl on December 29 are Duane Coleman, Dustin Fry, Roman Fry, Thomas Hunter, Reggie Merriweather, Will Proctor, Nic Riddle, Brent Smith and Anthony Waters.

Clemson will have 13 graduates on its roster for the bowl game against Kentucky. Last summer Chansi Stuckey, Brandon Cannon and Cole Chason had already received their degrees.

"I am certainly proud of these young men," said Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden. "I also want to thank the staff at Vickery Hall and the support they provide for our student-athletes on a year round basis."

Adams was named a unanimous first-team All-American this year as a defensive end. He is now in line to join Tye Hill and Rod Gardner as recent Tigers who were first-team All-Americans, Clemson graduates and first-round NFL draft choices. The NFL draft is in April and Adams is ranked among the top college prospects. Last year only seven players nationwide were first-team All-Americans, first-round draft selections and college graduates.
