There are still several Canadian University stars who have exhausted their University eligibility but have yet to be signed by a CFL team that has drafted them in 2012 or as a 2013 5th year free agent.
BILLY GREENE Aformer Hec Trophy winner and QB has accepted that he will be changing positions in the CFL. I know he has had several surgeries but there has been barely any news on the projected FB/TE. A rumor from a CIS insider said that the ALs were interested and that would give them a 3rd CIS QB on the roster with a position change but have not heard anything since his surgeries. Could really see him in a back up role to Patrick Lavoi as an offensive Canadian TE receiving threat.
FREDERICK PLESIUS He returned to Laval to supposedly win a Vanier Cup which I believe is partially true but he mainly did not want to wait two more years to get another crack at the NFL. Right now NFL rookie mini camps are begining but have not heard anything about him. He is already 25 and has played a lot of football for free it is about time he begins to start a pro career. He was a men among boys in the Vanier Cup but is that enough for an NFL team to bring him in as a 25 year old rookie with no pro experience. Hamilton or any other CFL team for that matter would definitely have a roster spot for him right away.
Arnaud Gacson Nadon Plesius' equally as dominating teammate I know has had some injury issues but both were drafted by Hamilton and unlike Plesius' Nadon does not have any NFL interest. Austin has brought in Hazon Hazime to go along with another former Laval DE Antione-Fortin. Nadon has all the makings of being a great CFL canadian special teams starter but is the new Hamilton regime not interested in him ?
JOHNNY APRILE Star receiver and punt returner at Queens was moved to safety last year by BBs coach Paul Lapo and saw quite a bit of pre season action before being released and returning to Queens for his 5th year. Certainly a top Canadian Football talent does he still fit with the BB plans as a possible back up at at safety behind Muamba. Vould new HC Burke be waiting to see if they will get a better safety prospect in the draft leaving Aprile to sign with another CFL team. the BBs have already signed All Canadian Sherman Teague out of their back yard at the U of Manitoba who already is a safety. They also have the other Westerman brother who was a safety and receiver like his NFL LB brother at Rutgers but never recorded any stats. Also th BBs hit pay dirt with rookie free agent Dan west listed as Safety but was an exclusive and top special teams player. So a bit crowded already at the Safety spot for BB.
KIRBY FABIEN Have not heard much but i suspect that he is awaitng some NFL rookie Mini Camp invites. BC GM Wally Buono in need of some Canadian talent at Oline may not be intrsted anymore after what happened last season and could a trade for his rights be in place come draft day ?
