WASHINGTON, D.C. – The NFL Players Association is proud to announce that DURON HARMON of Rutgers University has committed to playing in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
The Magnolia, Del., defensive back will be one of the talented draft-eligible seniors competing in the all-star game on Saturday, January 19 at The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, Calif.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised live on ESPN2. ESPNU will also air live broadcasts from practices on Thursday, January 17.
Harmon is a defensive starter for the Scarlet Knights who was named to his second consecutive All-Big East First Team thanks to a season with a career-high five pass breakups.

Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will serve as the head coaches for the American and National Teams. Player Ambassadors for the game include former NFL players Terrell Davis, Hank Baskett, T.J.
