“D.J. Park and Ulric Jones both graduated in May,” Muschamp said. “Skai Moore finished his exams Saturday and graduated from the University of South Carolina. We have eight guys on track to graduate in December and two of them still have eligibility.

“You’re talking about 11 guys on your football team that are walking out with their diploma and finishing their eligibility. That’s an amazing, impressive stat and that’s why they’re [here], to get their education. I compliment Maria and all of those young men and the job that they’ve done.”
