MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The Senior Bowl and the NFL will host a combine for top prospects from Historically Black Colleges and Universities next January.
The inaugural HBCU combine, scheduled for Jan. 28-29 in 2022, will be similar to the NFL combine with interviews and on-field and medical evaluations.
It will be held at the University of South Alabama and will feature select players from four HBCU conferences, the Southwestern Athletic Conference, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, and other HBCU institutions.
No HBCU players were drafted this year.
Alabama A&M, Alabama State, Alcorn State, Jackson State and Mississippi Valley State are all members of the SWAC.
