Penn State Nittany Lions star defensive lineman Jordan Hill is taking his talents to Mobile, Ala., the site of the 2012 Senior Bowl, according to Bob Flounders of The Patriot-News.
On Monday, the All-Big Ten Conference First-Team selection accepted an invitation to play in the annual event, which will be held Jan. 26 (4 p.m. ET on the NFL Network) . The Senior Bowl is a multiple-day showcase for college football seniors who want to show NFL scouts and front office brass what they can do.
Hill (6'1, 294) had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee a few weeks ago, and will need to prove to NFL decision makers he is fully recovered from the surgery.
This season, Hill compiled 64 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks for the Nittany Lions. The Steel-High graduate collected 12 tackles, three for a loss, in Penn State's thrilling 24-21 victory over the Wisconsin Badgers.
