Drue Tranquill and Alize Mack have accepted invites to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on January 26th, 2019.
Tranquill, a Fort Wayne native, will have exhausted his eligibility at the end of this season. Many thought he was going to enter the NFL Draft after the 2017 season, but he quickly announced at the 2017 Awards banquet that he would be returning for his fifth year. Drue is third on the team in total tackles this season with 75, and has a career total of 281 tackles to go along with 5.5 sacks and 3 interceptions.
Mack, a Las Vegas native, will forego his final year of eligibility — but is still on track to leave with a Notre Dame degree. Alize has had a fairly underwhelming career in South Bend after arriving as the “next guy” at Tight End U. Mack missed all of the 2016 season due to an academic situation. He has played a lot better this season with 34 receptions for 349 yards and 3 TD’s, but his career totals 66 receptions for 705 yards and 4 TD’s fall exceptionally short of the expectations that everyone had for him.
