Yes, Antonio Gates did graduate from Kent State University. He did so in 2003. At Kent he was a standout on the mens Basketball team that went to the Elite Eight during the NCAA Tournament. After graduating he worked out for 19 different NFL teams after being told he wasn't cut out for the NBA. The San Diego Chargers signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2003 and most recently he signed a 5 year $36 million contract.

Most impressive is that Gates hadn't played organized football since high school when he was signed by the Chargers...
