AUBURN, Ala.  C.J. Uzomah will join five of his former Auburn teammates in the Senior Bowl in Mobile next Saturday.

The tight end was added to the South roster this Saturday, joining quarterback Nick Marshall, running back Cameron Artis-Payne, center Reese Dismukes, receiver Sammie Coates and defensive lineman Gabe Wright. Marshall was also a late add, landing on the Senior Bowl roster Friday. In all, 10 Tigers are participating in all-star games.

The 6-foot-264-pound Uzomah played in the Medal of Honor Bowl last Saturday in Charleston, S.C., where he caught a pass for 29 yards. He had 11 catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns for Auburn in 2014. He had 29 catches for 435 yards and seven touchdowns in his career.

Two other Tigers were set for all-star game action this Saturday: Defensive end LaDarius Owens and offensive lineman Chad Slade were set to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Calif.

Uzomah, defensive back Jermaine Whitehead and defensive lineman Angelo Blackson played in the Medal of Honor Bowl. Whitehead had six tackles in that game.
