Dejon Allen has accepted an invitation to play in the Jan. 20 East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., according to agent Kenny Zuckerman.
Allen also was invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the Rose Bowl. Because the two all-star games are played on the same day, Allen had to make a choice.
The NFL assistants who will coach the East-West game will be selected following the league’s regular season.
Allen, who is 6 feet 3 and 295 pounds, completed his UH eligibility at the end of this past Saturday’s game against BYU at Aloha Stadium.
Allen reached an agreement with Zuckerman, who has represented Olin Kreutz, Dominic Raiola, Tyson Alualu, Kamalei Correa, Isaac Sopoaga, John Estes and Davone Bess.
