Former UConn WR in all-star game tomorrow

Former UConn receiver Michael Smith, who was third on the 2012 squad with 31 receptions and 407 receiving yards, is the latest Husky to get a chance to shine for NFL scouts when he plays in tomorrow's Texas vs. The Nation Game.

Smith, a Houston native, will be playing for the Texas squad in the game being played at Eagle Stadium in Allen, Tex., at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow.

Smith will become the seventh member of the 2012 squad to appear in a postseason all-star game.

Sio Moore starred in the East-West Shrine Game and joined Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson in the Senior Bowl, Jory Johnson and Ryan Griffin played in the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic and receiver Nick Williams took part in the Casino Del Sol All-Star game.

Trevardo Williams was selected to play in the Senior Bowl but he injured his ankle during a Senior Bowl practice and was replaced on the roster by Moore.
