BOISE - Former Boise State wide receiver Cedrick Wilson will get a chance to play in college football's most prestigious postseason all-star game later this month.

Wilson accepted an invite on Thursday to play in the 2018 Reese's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

"I'm just honored to be selected and look forward to showcasing my talent,” Wilson told KTVB.

Wilson is coming off a banner senior campaign for the Broncos. He hauled in 83 passes and set the single-season school record with 1,511 receiving yards, a total that ranked second in the FBS.

In his final collegiate game last month, Wilson pulled down 10 catches for 221 yards in the Las Vegas Bowl, the ladder of which is an FBS-best for a bowl game this season.

Wilson becomes the 11th Boise State alumnus to accept an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Quarterback Kellen Moore is the only former Bronco to participate in the game and go undrafted.

The game will kick off on Jan. 27 at 12:30 p.m. MT and air on the NFL Network.
