Auburn, Ala.--Eight Auburn University football players will receive degrees in spring commencement ceremonies on Saturday.

The group includes a trio of Tigers on the 2009 team--wide receiver Montez Billings, cornerback Walt McFadden and tailback Ben Tate.

They will join previously graduated players defensive end Antonio Coleman, cornerback Aairon Savage and tight end Tommy Trott as members of Coach Gene Chizik’s Tigers who will play this fall as postgraduates.

From the 2008 football team wide receiver Charles Olatunji, offensive lineman Jackson Timmerman and safety Jonathan Vickers will receive degrees on Saturday.

A pair of former Tigers will also pick up their degrees--defensive lineman Josh Thompson and field goal kicker John Vaughn.

Former Auburn football star Bo Jackson will be the commencement speaker.
