University of Kentucky senior linebacker Johnny Williams has been selected to play in the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday at Houston. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. and the game will be televised by ESPN2.

The 6-foot-3, 244-pound Williams tied for fifth on the team in tackles with 39 and had eight tackles for loss and a team-high five sacks.
