Of these, only Laval University Rouge et Or offensive lineman Cyrille Hogan-Saindon plays on the Quebec university circuit.

He ranks 18th in the ranking released by the CFL recruiting office.

“I am really happy! It was my goal to get noticed at the evaluation camp for my athletic skills,” said Hogan-Saindon, whose remarks were reported by the Rouge et Or website.

The other two representatives of La Belle Province are defensive back Enock Makonzo (Coastal Carolina) and wide receiver Samuel Émilius (Louisiana Tech). Athletes playing in the NCAA, in the United States, occupy respectively the eighth and 11th levels of the list for the amateur auction of the Ambrosie circuit.

Ontario wide receiver John Metchie III (Alabama) is considered the top prospect. Rounding out the top 3 are linebackers Jesse Puketa (Penn State) and Tyrell Richards (Syracuse).

The 2022 CFL Draft is scheduled for May 3.
