Former Ohio State tight end Rashod Berry is set to participate in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 18.

Berry was included on the “American” team when the rosters for the postseason college all-star game were released on Wednesday.

Though he also played defensive end for the Buckeyes last season, Berry was listed as a tight end.

He caught two passes for 20 yards as a senior after a career-best nine catches for 78 yards and two touchdowns the previous fall.

Tight end Marcus Baugh and defensive tackle Michael Hill were the last Ohio State players to participate in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl while they prepared for the NFL draft in 2018. The rosters include only draft-eligible players.

The game is held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and will air on the NFL Network.

Former Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson is the coach for the “American” team, while former Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is to coach the “National” team.

Other college players who have signed on for the all-star game include Michigan State quarterback Brian Lewerke, Wisconsin linebacker Chris Orr and Ohio University quarterback Nathan Rourke.
