Kyle Prater to play in Medal of Honor Bowl

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Northwestern wide receiver Kyle Prater has accepted an invitation to play in the Medal of Honor Bowl on Jan. 10, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Prater, coming off the best season of his college career, will play in the all-star game, along with other college seniors hoping to find a spot on an NFL roster. Former Buffalo Bills and Georgia Tech head coach Chan Gailey will coach one of the teams, while College Football Hall of Fame member Willie Jeffries will coach the other.

The former five-star recruit finished 2014 on the bench with, according to the Chicago Tribune's Teddy Greenstein, a lacerated kidney, so it's good to see Prater is back healthy. He collected a career-best 535 yards during his final collegiate season.
