Barack Obama sends letter to Michigan senior Jordan Morgan after his graduation (PHOTO)

May 26, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

Jordan Morgan had a solid senior season for Michigan, averaging 6.4 points and five rebounds per game on 70 percent shooting from the field in 20.1 minutes per game. The 6-foot-8 senior really stepped up his play in the 2014 NCAA Tournament, as well, as Morgan went for multiple double-doubles and was a key member of Michigan’s run to the Elite Eight.

And although Michigan fell short of a second consecutive Final Four, Morgan moves on as a graduate from the university as the big man received his master’s degree in manufacturing engineering after receiving his bachelor’s in industrial and operational engineering.

Pretty cool that Morgan received a letter from the President as a college graduate after a solid playing career.

    And where is BO’s letters to our military vets? It’s not like this kid served his country. My sons never got a letter from the pres.

    Two engineering degrees I doubt he’s drinking six pack’s. And soldiers get a paycheck.

      Few kids can even get through D3 athletics and an engineering degree. Pretty impressive what this kid’s done.

    No time to stay current with world and national events, but time to sent notes to athletes. Quite some priority for a president!
