Five now-former Oklahoma State players are expected to participate in post-season collegiate all-start games: three in the EAST/WEST Shrine game later today, one in the Reese’s Senior Bowl next Saturday, and one in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl later today.
That last one is wide receiver Jhajuan Seales.
Seales is playing for the American Team led by former Washington Redskins Head Coach Jim Zorn.
Seales, a redshirt senior, finished his OSU career with 1,170 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. He was always considered one of the fastest and most athletic receivers, though it never consistently showed up on the field.
His best game came this last season against Pittsburgh where he caught seven passes for 129 yards, including an 86 yarder.
Other big names competing this year include Quarterback Greg Ward, Jr. (Houston) and Keon Hatcher (Arkansas),
Fellow former Big 12 players Thomas Ahmad (Oklahoma) and Jeremy Tyler (West Virginia) are also competing to impress the scouts in the game.
It’s only the 6th year of the National Football League Player Association’s game. While there aren’t a lot of notable alums, the list does include drafted players like former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin (Seattle).
In the games first five seasons, the National Team has won every time. That gives Seales an opportunity do something no one else has... win the game.
The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl kicks off at 3:15 CT today at the StubHub Center in Carson, LA. You can watch the game on FS1.
We wish him good luck and hope it helps him see his dream of getting drafted by an NFL team on April 27th.
