19 current, former players to get degrees

The University Washington will hold graduation ceremonies next week, and the school recently released a list of 19 current and former football players who will be receiving degrees at that time.
Here they are:
NAME, AREA OF STUDY
Wilson Afoa, American Ethnic Studies
Tahj Bomar, Communications
Carl Bonnell, History
Mark Bruener, Economics
Johnny DuRocher, Sociology
Cody Ellis, Sociology
Robert Lewis, Spanish
Roy Lewis, American Ethnic Studies
Chad Macklin, General Studies
Alex Mercier, General Studies
Troy Perry, Political Science
Louis Rankin, American Ethnic Studies
Jordan Reffett, Political Science
Anthony Russo, American Ethnic Studies
Sonny Shackelford, American Ethnic Studies
CJ Wallace, American Ethnic Studies
Corey Williams, Art History
Marlon Wood, Political Science
Sho Yoshinaga, Electrical Engineering
One of the more interesting names on the list is that of Bruener, who obviously got some work done during a few NFL off-seasons.
As you can also see, there are 11 players on the list who are expected to be part of the team next fall.
Those players have to be enrolled in school to continue to play, so some may begin taking graduate classes or hold off on taking one or two undergrad classes and then take those in the fall (UW allows students to graduate as long as they are within 12 of the required 180 credits).
I wrote a story for the paper last year on this topic, which you can find here and hopefully will answer any other questions you might have on this.
