Duke Riley‘s break-out senior season just got even better.

The LSU linebacker on Wednesday received his invitation to participate in the Senior Bowl, a postseason NFL showcase held in Mobile, Alabama.

After spending the bulk of his college career as a special teams player and reserve linebacker, Riley has emerged as the Tigers’ second-leading tackler in his first season as a starter. He has 73 stops and eight tackles for loss as an inside linebacker in Dave Aranda’s 3-4 defense.

Riley had previously recorded 51 tackles and one tackle for loss during his first three seasons in Baton Rouge.

He’s a big reason LSU has the No. 6 scoring defense in the nation, giving up just 13.9 points per game. For his efforts, he’ll be competing alongside the nation’s best seniors on Jan. 28, 2017, in Mobile.
