Trinton Sturdivant becomes a college graduate today.
Whether his future still might include another season playing football at Georgia isn’t clear.
Sturidvant is one of 10 current and former players that are receiving their degrees at fall commencement ceremonies this morning in Stegeman Coliseum.
Sturdivant, a starter at left offensive tackle for seven games last year who was a projected starter this year, missed the season after sustaining a torn ACL in his right knee this spring, the third major knee injury of his career.
Sturdivant, who is receiving his undergraduate degree in finance, hasn’t ruled out trying to play in 2012. Not as an offensive lineman but as a tight end.
“That’s one of those things I really don’t know,” Sturdivant said after the SEC championship game. “I have a lot of things in place right now. I’m putting it in the Lord’s hand really. Whatever plays out for me, it plays out.”
Sturdivant could pursue returning for a sixth-year year of eligibility due to his medical reasons.
“I’m not going to say or do anything ignorant just be emotions,” Sturdivant said. “I’m going to take my time and methodically think about all my options with the possibilities I have and the possibilities of Georgia football.”
