Dwyane Wade to take summer classes

With both the Heat and the U.S. national team awaiting a decision regarding his immediate future plans, star guard Dwyane Wade confirmed his first summer commitment.

He is headed back to school. Wade plans to enroll in online courses at Marquette to work toward an undergraduate communications degree.

Wade, 28, discussed his intentions in advance of Saturday’s game against the Bucks at the Bradley Center. Wade played his college games at the same arena, where Marquette retired his No. 3 jersey in 2007.

Part of the agreement to honor Wade at that time was that he would eventually try to complete his degree.

“It’s a process,” said Wade, who has about 30 college credits remaining. “It’s something that will take a while because I don’t have a normal schedule. But it’s something that we’ll get completed.”
