Maryland football senior defensive back Jakorian Bennett will officially be heading to the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl, the organization announced last Thursday.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl is seen as college football’s premier all-star game and is an incredible opportunity for NFL Draft prospects to showcase their talents. Played annually in Mobile, Alabama, this year’s game is set for Feb. 4, 2023.

Bennett arrived in College Park before the 2020 season after spending two seasons at Hutchinson Community College. In three years as a Terp, Bennett has emerged as a star at cornerback. According to his Maryland profile, Bennett’s 26 pass breakups since the start of the 2021 season are the most in the nation.

February’s game will be a homecoming for Bennett, whose hometown is also Mobile. As of Sunday night, Bennett is one of 14 players who have accepted invites to the 2023 game. Bennett is slated to be the first Terp to play in the event since safety Antoine Brooks did so in 2020.
