The rosters for the East-West Shrine Game are set and several more Big Ten players are headed to Mobile, Ala., for the Reese's Senior Bowl. Here's an update of where things stand.
The big news is that Michigan State linebacker Max Bullough, suspended for a team rules violation before the Rose Bowl, will be headed to the Shrine Game on Jan. 18 in St. Petersburg, Fla. Bullough undoubtedly will face questions about his suspension as he prepares for the NFL scouting combine in February and the draft in April.
Penn State safety Stephen Obeng-Agyapong also was announced to the game today.
Here's the final Big Ten contingent in the Shrine game:
Penn State guard John Urschel
Michigan wide receiver Jeremy Gallon
Purdue cornerback Ricardo Allen
Purdue defensive tackle Bruce Gaston
Penn State linebacker Glenn Carson
Wisconsin safety Dezmen Southward
Wisconsin guard Ryan Groy
Nebraska tackle Jeremiah Sirles
Indiana tight end Ted Bolser
Nebraska wide receiver Quincy Enunwa
Wisconsin nose tackle Beau Allen
Minnesota safety Brock Vereen
The Senior Bowl announced 10 more players earlier today, including four from the Big Ten: Wisconsin running back James White and Jacob Pedersen, Illinois linebacker Jonathan Brown and Ohio State running back Carlos Hyde. The following Big Ten players had been previously confirmed: Wisconsin wide receiver Jared Abbrederis and linebacker Chris Borland, Northwestern wide receiver Kain Colter, Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, Iowa tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, Penn State defensive tackle DaQuan Jones, Ohio State tackle Jack Mewhort, Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman, Iowa linebacker Christian Kirksey and Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste.
White and Pedersen both had been committed to the Shrine Game but switched to the more prestigious Senior Bowl.
