Fellow Morehouse Alum. Drafted into the NFL: Ramon Harewood

Morehouse College offensive tackle Ramon Harewood just finished playing his fourth season of football, organized or otherwise, and now he's in the NFL drafted by the Baltimore Ravens.

He was born and raised in Barbados, where he played cricket, rugby, soccer, volleyball and track and field. He majored in Applied Physics & Engineering and legitimately wants to be a rocket scientist when he’s done with football.

Major: Applied Physics & Engineering

Graduation plans: To be a successful engineer or professional athlete

Harewood was accepted for the 2006 spring term at Morehouse College and received an academic scholarship.

"When the opportunity arose for me to at least come over here and get a good education, even if I didn't get to play sports, it would have been better," said Harewood, whose only experience with football to that point had been watching it on television.

Harewood, though, has proven to be a quick learner, befitting his 3.0-plus GPA in applied physics and engineering.

"I don't think it's been too hard to learn, to be honest with you," Harewood said. "Sometimes it got confusing, like dealing with different defenses, but it's never been too hard."
