R.J. Shelton will get a chance to showcase his NFL talents in January when he takes part in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Shelton is one of many college players who have committed to playing in the annual college all-star game, which takes place Jan. 21 at California State University, Dominguez Hills.

This past season, Shelton led Michigan State with 53 catches for 789 yards and five touchdowns. He also had 18 carries for 121 yards and returned kickoffs.

For his efforts, Shelton was named Michigan State’s most valuable player at the team’s annual awards banquet.

The sixth annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl will feature many of the country’s top college stars and NFL prospects. For one week, participants will receive an in-depth introduction to their future union.

The NFLPA, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, is the primary resource for players to gain information on the business of football and how to succeed in the NFL and in their post-football careers.
