Pat Lynch(the old guy)

There are 3 Canadian Hogs OL at 6-5" at plus 280! Future CFL? NFL?
Interesting thread thx

The biggest prospect in years - Michael O'Connor - a Canadian QB - that is rare. He's only a first year freshman but has great potential.

He's decided to jump ship and leave Penn State and go to Baylor. So you won't see him in the Jan Bowl game.

Thanks for the list Pat! Always adds to watching bowl games getting to know some prospects from Canada

One note regarding the list: Terrel Davis left Arizona and played this past season at UBC

I see a couple of Seniors on the list. What is the scouting report on them in regards to playing pro. I don't think either are in the top 15 for december.

Good list. I thought Akeel Lynch was a Junior (he was a Freshman in 2012) and if he is, he and Grover Covington should be top rated prospects for next year's CFL draft.

Thanks for that list, but there is something I should note about it. The Canadian receiver who'll be playing in the Boca Raton Bowl is Juwan Brescacin. Jordan Brescacin was a receiver on this team's practice roster in 2012.

Some of you may already know that Christian Covington is the son of Grover Covington. And if Christian Covington plays in the CFL, I'm sure we'll be reminded of that fact. :slight_smile:

There is a good article on O'Connor here: ... pro-dreams
