LaBryan Ray will not use his sixth year of eligibility at the University of Alabama.

He has had some good moments, but injuries halted him from having a successful college career. Ray arrived in the Crimson Tide’s 2017 recruiting class as a five-star defensive end.

He won two national championships (2017, 2020) and three SEC Championships (2018, 2020, 2021), but Ray could have been a huge star if not for injuries. He wants to pursue the National Football League and has decided to participate in the East-West Shrine Bowl.

The exhibition will be on Thursday, Feb. 3 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev.

Several NFL scouts will be in attendance, and Ray will get a chance to show his skills.

Ray totaled 11 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack, and four quarterback hurries in 12 games for 2021.
