Goin' Prospectin'

CFL General Managers, scouts and other evaluation personnel have done their prodding, probing and timing, they've examined the athletic achievements, academic records and divined character from a wide cross section of Canadian University Football's best.

And now, as March moves into April, it's expected that the CFL's eight teams will be seeking to bring those that they believe will offer the best result for their squads to training camp in May.

The CFL's evaluation camps held earlier this month, provided GM's with a potential blue print for the future of Canadian talent, always a key ingredient for any successful CFL campaign.

Some of the names on the lineup sheet will go on to CFL success, others will fade from view destined to put their dreams of football as profession on hold forever as they move on with their future.

Still, for a few days in March all were on the same page, where they are placed later on is yet to be seen.

The CFL's website features this review of the developments at the prospect's camp.
