Update: 3:04 p.m. – Arkansas State quarterback Ryan Aplin also will attend the Redskins rookie minicamp this week. The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Aplin led the Sun Belt Conference with 3,129 passing yards and 23 passing touchdowns in 2012.

Original: Published 12:55 p.m. - Add two more to the list of players who will attend the Washington Redskins rookie minicamp at the end of this week.

Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin and Michigan guard Ricky Barnum both have accepted invitations to attend the camp as unsigned players.

Players will report to Redskins Park on Thursday, and practices will take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The camp will feature the Redskins’ seven draft picks, the undrafted rookies that they signed, as well as a collection of players trying out for roster spots.

The team has yet to release the list of names of the players that will be in attendance. It’s expected that an official announcement will be made within the next day or so.

The Redskins have signed Utah center Tevita Stevens, Florida tackle Xavier Nixon, UAB inside linebacker in Marvin Burdett and two wide receivers, New Haven’s Jason Thompson and U-Conn.’s Nick Williams, as undrafted free agents, according to those players’ agents.

The team also has extended a rookie minicamp invitation to McNeese State cornerback Seth Thomas, in addition to McGloin and Barnum.

McGloin, a 6-foot-1, 207-pound redshirt senior, helped lead Penn State to an 8-4 record in 2012, completing 270 of 446 passes for 3,266 yards, 24 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also rushed for five touchdowns.

Barnum, a 6-2, 297-pound redshirt senior, started all 13 games at left guard for Michigan this past season.
