— Former Arkansas linebacker Dre Greenlaw has been added to the roster for the Senior Bowl next week.

Greenlaw will play for the North team in the game, which is played annually in Mobile, Ala., and considered the premier all-star game for college seniors. The game will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 and will be televised by NFL Network.

Greenlaw recorded 80 tackles, including 6.5 for loss and 2 sacks as a senior in 2018. He also recorded two of the team's five interceptions and had a fumble recovery. He missed three games with an ankle injury.

"Greenlaw battled thru some injuries in ‘18 but his junior tape was good," Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy wrote in a Twitter post announcing Greenlaw's addition to the roster. "NFL teams like him because he can really run."

Greenlaw is the only Arkansas player who has been invited to this year's Senior Bowl. He also wrote on his Twitter account last week that he has been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Four other former Razorbacks will play in all-star games Saturday. Offensive lineman Hjalte Froholdt and defensive end Randy Ramsey are scheduled to play for the National team in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., and defensive lineman Armon Watts and offensive lineman Brian Wallace are scheduled to play for the West team in the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The Shrine game will be televised by NFL Network beginning at 2 p.m., and the NFLPA game will be televised by FS1 beginning at 4 p.m.

UPDATE: The Senior Bowl website switched Greenlaw from the South roster to the North roster after the original publication of this story.
