The Reese’s Senior Bowl began the week with some big news coming out of Mobile, Alabama.

According to a tweet on Monday morning, the Reese’s Senior Bowl has officially announced that Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker has accepted an invitation to the event.

While it doesn’t seem likely that Hooker will be able to actually participate on the field, the Senior Bowl will still be a can’t-miss opportunity for the NFL hopeful to go through meetings, pick the brain of several coaches representing several NFL organizations, and talk to scouts along the way.

Hooker tore his ACL against South Carolina on Nov. 19, 2022, and received surgery quickly after.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl will take place on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023, with a week of practices and events leading into the game beforehand.

Hooker is now the third Tennessee player to accept his Senior Bowl invitation, joining OL Darnell Wright and DE Byron Young. All three of the Tennessee plays will play for the American team against the National team during the game.

The American team will be the home of any player from the SEC. Other notable names from the conference include Alabama linebacker Henry To’o To’o, Kentucky’s Chris Rodriguez Jr, and Georgia’s Kenny McIntosh.

Oklahoma running back Eric Gray will also play in the game for the American team.

Wright, Gray, and To’o To’o all spent two years on the Tennessee roster together in 2019 and 2020.

Hendon Hooker finished the 2022 football season with 3,135 yards and 27 touchdowns with a league-leading 89.5 QBR. Hooker also added 430 yards and five touchdowns with his legs on the ground.

The 74th annual Reese’s Senior Bowl will take place on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 1:30 p.m. ET at the University of South Alabama’s Hancock Whitney Stadium.
