For many college football players, it’s bowl season. For others, it’s on to NFL Draft season.

The Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Bowl are important parts of the draft process for players, especially those who have gone under the radar on less successful or small-school teams.

Both games in 2022 will feature players from the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Running back Rachaad White will forego participation in ASU’s Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 30 and prepare for the draft with an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The game will take place at 12:30 p.m. MST on Feb. 5 in Mobile, Alabama.

On the defensive side of the ball for Arizona State, linebacker Darien Butler, defensive tackle D.J. Davidson and defensive backs Jack Jones and Chase Lucas have accepted invites to the East-West Shrine Bowl.

However, Jones tweeted he will not play in ASU’s bowl game vs. Wisconsin, but will play in Las Vegas on Feb. 3, for the showcase in front of NFL scouts.

On the other side of the ball for the Sun Devils, offensive tackle Kellen Diesch has accepted his invitation to participate in the 2022 edition of the game.

Arizona Wildcats receiver and return man Stanley Berryhill III also has accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Bowl.
