University of Miami Student-Athletes Earn Degrees at Fall Commencement

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – During commencement exercises today at the University of Miami, 37 Hurricanes student-athletes are set to earn their undergraduate or graduate degrees.

“Graduation is a significant milestone for our student-athletes, and I am extremely proud of what this group of Hurricanes has accomplished,” Vice President/Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “I am excited to see where their life’s journey takes them from here, and they will always have a home at the University of Miami.”

Seven of the University’s athletic programs were represented at today’s commencement, led by the football team with 15 graduates, including All-America safety Kamren Kinchens and All-ACC wide receiver Xavier Restrepo.

The list also includes ACC 400 meter indoor and outdoor champion Moriah Oliveira, NCAA triple jump silver medalist Russell Robinson, and volleyball All-ACC selection Savannah Vach, who set Miami’s career assists record.

Two former student-athletes are set to graduate, including Frank Gore, who played running back at UM from 2001-04 before embarking on a 16-year career in the National Football League. He ranks third in the NFL in career rushing yards.
