At least three Bulls — and one former Bull — already have accepted invitations to compete in the 93rd East-West Shrine Game at Tropicana Field in January.
QB Quinton Flowers reportedly has been invited, while the invitations to DT Deadrin Senat and RB D'Ernest Johnson have been confirmed. Former Bulls QB Mike White, who has started for Western Kentucky the last two seasons after transferring from USF in the spring of 2015, also reportedly has been invited.
All players who have accepted their respective invitations will be revealed at this link starting Friday. The game will be held Jan. 20 at 3 p.m., and broadcast live on NFL Network.
The game, and week of local practices leading to it, are heavily attended by NFL scouts. Coaching staffs consist of NFL assistants whose teams didn't reach the playoffs.
USF has had 15 previous Shrine Game participants, but never more than two in one year.
