Three more players have been added to the East-West Shrine Game roster as Rutgers' D.C. Jefferson, R.J. Dill and Scott Vallone accepted invites to play, the school announced over the past few days. The trio mark the 15th, 16th and 17th Rutgers players to ever participate in the event.

Dill is a graduate student who graduated from Maryland in 2011, before starting every game for Rutgers this season at offensive tackle. He has a streak of 42 consecutive starts, dating back to his time with the Terrapins.

Vallone, a 2012 All-Big East First Team selection, had a career-high 12.5 tackles-for-loss with 50 total tackles as a senior this season.
