The Reese’s Senior Bowl, in collaboration with the National Football League (NFL), will hold the Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU) combine in Mobile, according to a recent announcement. Select players from four HBCU conferences – the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and Southwestern Athletic Conference – and other HBCU institutions will be invited to participate in the event to showcase HBCU draft-eligible talent. The HBCU combine will include the gathering of comprehensive medical information, interviews, and on-field evaluations of football skills and acumen. It will be held at the University of South Alabama. Last year’s event, announced in February 2020, was postponed due to the pandemic. An HBCU Scouting Committee of current and former league executives will evaluate and select the participants. The Senior Bowl will provide medical and football personnel to capture pre-draft information on HBCU prospects. The 73rd Annual Reese’s Senior Bowl will kick off on February 5, 2022, at 1:30 p.m. at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile.
