Former Husker Ndamukong Suh is temporarily swapping his Detroit Lions uniform for a swimsuit to star in the upcoming ABC reality television show "Celebrity Diving."

The cast will compete in front of judges, including Greg Lougainis and 2012 gold medalist David Boudia.

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson, "Cosby Show" actor Keshia Knight-Pulliam and "Baywatch" babe Nicole Eggert will join Suh in the cast.

Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of University of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, will also appear on the show.

Webb's popularity soared during ESPN's telecast of the Jan. 7 national championship game. Commentator Brent Musburger later apologized for his comments about Webb during the telecast.

"Celebrity Diving" is scheduled to premiere this spring.
