The Medal of Honor Bowl has added South Carolina receiver Damiere Byrd, Clemson lineman David Beasely and two Florida State Seminoles to its rosters for the Jan. 10 college football all-star game.

FSU receiver Christian Green and cornerback Nick Waisome, who played in the College Football Playoff semifinal against Oregon on New Year's Day, have committed to play in the game at Johnson Hagood Stadium, bowl officials said Friday.

USC's Byrd, 5-9 and 170 pounds, caught 20 passes for 318 yards and three touchdowns for USC this season, and also ran seven times for 57 yards.

Beasley, 6-4 and 330 pounds, was an honorable-mention all-ACC pick this season.

Georgia Tech lineman Shaq Mason (6-1, 300) will join Yellow Jackets running back Synjyn Days in the Medal of Honor Bowl.

The additions give the Medal of Honor Bowl 44 players from ACC and SEC schools. The game is set for 2:30 p.m. Jan. 10 at Johnson Hagood Stadium, and will be televised nationally by the NBC Sports Network.
