BATON ROUGE – LSU linebacker Micah Baskerville and wide receiver Jaray Jenkins will make one final appearance in a college football game on Saturday as the former Tiger standouts will take part in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

Kickoff for the all-star game is scheduled for 5 p.m. from the Rose Bowl. The NFL Network will televise the contest.

Baskerville and Jenkins, representing the National Team, will be coached by Eddie George. Baskerville will wear No. 52 on Saturday, while Jenkins will wear No. 11.

The duo recently wrapped up their career with the Tigers, helping LSU to a 10-4 mark and the SEC Western Division title.

Baskerville led LSU in tackles in 2022 with 89, which included a season-high 15 against Tennessee. He had 11 tackles in a win over Florida and nine against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. Baskerville tallied 259 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss and three sacks during his five years with the Tigers.

Jenkins led all LSU receivers in touchdowns with six in 2022. He caught 27 passes for 404 yards. In his four years at LSU, Jenkins caught 89 passes for 1,370 yards and 14 touchdowns. Jenkins graduated in December.

Past LSU participants in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl include John Battle (2019), Russell Gage (2018), Frank Herron (2018), Reid Ferguson (2016), Kadron Boone (2014), and J.C. Copeland (2014).

Faulk was huge in the pass game for those early patriots teams. Way more than just a person who excelled on special teams. He was a huge part of a few of those super bowls to the point I don’t think they win without him.

Bud, look back at his time he never had huge numbers in his collective career.

I think Jaray will have a Kevin Faulk type career in the NFL. He is a worker who will excel in special teams. Stick around 8 or 10 years.

I hope you're right, but of course the obvious difference between the 2 is that 1 was a RB and the other a WR. Plus, Kevin Faulk was a workhorse of a RB for LSU and NE. He had talent, but worked so hard out there on the field. Idk if Jaray Jenkins has the same drive or work mentality in him as Faulk did. But we'll see or find out if he does in the NFL.
