The induction ceremonies will take place as part of the 45th annual awards dinner held by the National Football Foundation. The actual enshrinement will take place in August at the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Ind.
In addition to the 13 players, Earle Bruce and Carmen Cozza will be inducted as coaches.
White played defensive tackle at Tennessee from 1980-83, and was a unanimous All-America selection in his senior season, when he also was a Lombardi Award finalist.
He was the SEC Conference Player of the Year in 1983, and holds Tennessee records for sacks in a game (4), season (15), and career (32).
After playing one season in the USFL, White was selected in the first round of the 1985 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He is the NFL's all-time leader with 198 sacks, and was a member of the Super Bowl XXXI champion Green Bay Packers.
Marino, one of a long line of great quarterbacks from western Pennsylvania, was a four-year starter at Pittsburgh from 1979-82. He guided the Panthers to a 42-6 record, including three straight bowl game victories.
Marino was an All-America selection in 1981, when he set single-season school records with 2,876 passing yards and 37 touchdown passes. He was selected in the first round of the 1983 draft by the Miami Dolphins, and retired after the 1999 season as the NFL's all-time leader in completions (4,967), yards (61,361), and touchdowns (420).
Lott, a safety at Southern California from 1977-80, was a member of the 1978 national championship team, and a unanimous All-America pick in his senior season.
One of the hardest hitting defensive backs in NFL history, Lott was a two-time All-Pac-10 selection before winning four Super Bowl rings with the San Francisco 49ers. He also played with the Los Angeles Raiders and New York Jets during a 15-year NFL career, and was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000.
Kellen Winslow, also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is the only tight end selected this year. He played at Missouri from 1976-78, totaling 71 receptions, 1,089 yards, and 10 touchdowns.
Winslow was a consensus All-American in 1978, and went on to a nine-year career with the San Diego Chargers. His son, Kellen Winslow Jr., is a tight end for top-ranked Miami.
Three running backs will be inducted: George Sonny Franck (Minnesota, 1938-40), Napoleon McCallum (Navy, 1983-85), and Cosmo Iacavazzi (Princeton, 1962-64).
Offensive linemen Reggie McKenzie (Michigan, 1969-71) and Jerry Sisemore (Texas, 1970-72), as well as defensive back Randy Rhino (Georgia Tech, 1972-74) and linebacker Gary Spani (Kansas State 1974-77) also will be honored.
John Jefferson, a teammate of Winslow's at San Diego who played from 1974-77 at Arizona State, is of two receivers in the Class of 2002. Terry Beasley (Auburn, 1969-71) is the other.
Bruce followed Woody Hayes at Ohio State and coached the Buckeyes from 1979-87, posting a record of 81-26-1.
Cozza coached 32 years at Yale and won 10 Ivy League titles. His overall record at the school was 179-119-5.
To be eligible for the College Football Hall of Fame, a player needs to have received major first team All-America recognition and be 10 years removed from his last collegiate season.
Players must prove themselves as "worthy citizens," and only those who have played within the last 50 years are considered. Coaches with a minimum .600 winning percentage, 10 years, and 100 games are eligible three after retiring.
The Class of 2002 was announced in May.
