CORAL GABLES, Fla. - University of Miami senior defensive back Brandon McGee has accepted an invitation to play in the 88th East-West Shrine Game, which will be held Jan. 19, 2013, at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

McGee, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., will be the 44th Miami Hurricane to play in the East-West Shrine Game and first UM defensive back since Al Blades in 2001. As a senior in 2012, he started all 12 games at defensive back and finished tied for sixth on the team with 54 tackles. He snagged a team-high-tying two interceptions and also notched 4.0 tackles-for-loss.

Miami's shut-down corner was a two-year starter at defensive back, concluding his career with 24 consecutive starts. He graduated Thursday from the University of Miami with a bachelor's degree in sports administration and a minor in entrepreneurship.
