Tennessee defensive lineman Marlon Walls has accepted an invitation to the College All-Star Bowl in Charleston, S.C.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. on Feb. 14 and will be televised by the CBS Sports Network.

Walls will join Vols defensive end Corey Miller in the first-year showcase game being played at Palladin Stadium at Furman University.

Walls had 20 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 11 games as a fifth-year senior in 2013.

The bowl will determine teams by a draft. Former Clemson coach Danny Ford will coach the “Nationals,” while former South Carolina State head coach Willie Jeffries will coach the “Americans.”
