Clemson coach Tommy Bowden said in a news release Saturday that McElrathbey will graduate in August. McElrathbey has two years' eligibility left and could play for another school or remain at Clemson to pursue a master's degree.
McElrathbey, who missed all of last season after knee surgery in September, has not announced his plans.
As a red-shirt freshman, McElrathbey played in all 13 games on special teams in 2006 and had six tackles.
The Atlanta native took custody of his then 11-year-old brother Fahmarr in 2006 after their parents were unable to care for him.
McElrathbey received national accolades, including the Keith Jackson Award of Excellence on the ESPN college football All-American show and the 2006 FedEx/Football Writers Association courage award.
