Former Penn State All-American offensive lineman John Urschel has been named to the College Football Playoff selection committee. "College football is such an wonderful thing, and has given me so much".

The playoff announced Wednesday that the Hawkeyes athletic director would take over as the committee's chair from Oregon AD Rob Mullens, the man who has been the face of the committee for the past two seasons on ESPN's weekly rankings reveal shows.

"Tom, Rick and John each bring an exciting breadth of experiences and expertise to the committee", CFP spokesperson Bill Hancock said in a statement.

University of Iowa athletic director Gary Barta has been named Chairman of the College Football Playoff Committee.

The Playoff also announced Colorado athletic director Rick George and Wyoming athletic director Tom Burman as new members on Thursday. Penn State is sort of where I met my best friends in the world, and this is sort of the place where I grew into the mathematician I am today and it's also the place where I grew as a football player.

A victor of the Campbell Trophy, sometimes referred to as the "academic Heisman", Urschel was a fifth-round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2014. He retired after three years and is now enrolled at MIT, pursuing a Ph.D in applied mathematics. Members of the committee must recuse themselves from discussions involving their own schools. If it weren't for a certain Saquon Barkley, Urschel would be Penn State's most marketable alum in recent history, appearing in multiple national commercials.
