Senior Bowl Roster 2012: Former Rockies Prospect Russell Wilson Added To North Roster

While game officials have yet to announce the full rosters for the 2012 Senior Bowl, announcements continue to trickle out. On Tuesday, the Senior Bowl announced that six Wisconsin players accepted invitations to play in the game, including quarterback -- and former Colorado Rockies prospect -- Russell Wilson.

Wilson, a four-year starter, led Wisconsin to the Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl appearance in 2011. He spent the previous three seasons at North Carolina State, where he also played baseball. Wilson was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB draft by the Colorado Rockies, and it was his split commitments that eventually led to his departure from the Wolfpack.

Wilson will play on the North team along with Boise State QB Kellen Moore. The Minnesota Vikings staff is coaching the North side in this year's game.
