USF quarterback Quinton Flowers has been selected as one of six QBs to participate in the 93rd East-West Shrine Game taking place at Tropicana Field on January 20.
Optimum Scouting's Eric Galko reported Saturday morning that the Liberty City native has been invited to the postseason showcase in St. Petersburg, where he'll have the opportunity to perform in front of professional scouts.

Although his senior year numbers are not as gaudy his prior two years as the USF starter, Flowers is still having a productive season.
Through nine games so far, he's thrown for just under 2,000 yards and 15 touchdowns while averaging 8.4 adjusted yards per attempt. While his 55.1 completion percentage is a career low, he's still doing a heck of a job not turning the ball over, with only four interceptions this season.
On the ground, he's on pace for his second straight 1,000+ yard rushing season. He currently has 751 yards and nine touchdowns.
A handful of other former Bulls have been tabbed for the showcase in recent years. Andre Davis and Marvin Kloss were invited in 2015, and Jamie Byrd received an invite in 2016. Rodney Adams was invited to last year's game, but an ankle injury kept him sidelined. Thanks Birmingham Bowl turf.
The game itself will be broadcasted live on the NFL Network. Full rosters and coaching staffs will be officially announced in the coming months.
