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.
