In 2018, Hurts completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications at Alabama and now adds another accolade to what has been a momentous career thus far. The former OU star is coming off an MVP-caliber season in the NFL, accounting for nearly 4,500 total yards and 35 TDs en route to an appearance in Super Bowl LVII.
His stellar 2022 campaign earned him a five-year, $255M extension with the Eagles, cementing him as one the premier signal-callers in today’s game. With his Master’s in hand, Hurts is also set for the future if this football thing doesn’t work out for whatever reason.
This is just another instance of Jalen Hurts always “starving for more,” exemplifying it on and off the field.
