It may fly under the radar for most, but the 22nd annual State Farm All-Star Football Challenge is set to take place on Jan. 31 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The skills competition will pit 24 college football stars in a team event. Among those participating in this year’s challenge will be Boston College running back AJ Dillon, Penn State defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos, Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray, and Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.

This is quite a busy time of year with changes flying every which way in college football. From the ongoing coaching carousel to the flurry of players continuing to move through the transfer portal and now the growing list of players who will opt to skip their final year of eligibility to test the NFL draft waters. TCU’s top wide receiver is dipping his toes in the NFL Draft pool. Jalen Reagor announced his decision with a statement on his Twitter account.

“From the time I was 8 years old and got to see up close my dad win a Super Bowl with the Colts, I knew I wanted to play in the NFL and win a championship,” Reagor said. “After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to forego my remaining eligibility and enter the NFL draft. I am looking forward to contributing at the next level.”

Reagor led the Horned Frogs with 611 yards and five touchdowns this season. Reagor also added 212 punt return yards and two touchdowns on punt returns. He will certainly be a player to keep an eye on given his ability to play receiver and special teams.
