Former USC defensive end Melvin Ingram will participate in the 14th annual All-Star Football Challenge, an exciting, live skills competition featuring college football’s brightest stars. The program is scheduled to air Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and will have encore airings at 4:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 12 and Feb. 26 on ESPN.
Ingram had a monster season with the Gamecocks, recording 10 sacks and 48 total tackles while playing in every game. Ingram recorded two forced-fumble touchdowns, as well. The agile and powerful defensive end is expected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft, according to ESPN.com.
Ingram will be joined by Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd (No. 18-ranked prospect, according to Scouts Inc.’s Top 32) and Texas linebacker Kennan Robinson, as well as nine other college football stars. A full list of 2012 participants will be available soon.
