Carleton signs first CFC 100 recruit (VIDEO)

Ontario linebacker becomes first CFC 100 to join OUA team’s 2015 class.

The Carleton Ravens have landed their first CFC 100 recruit.

This past week, Jack Cassar became the newest Raven.  The 6’3, 215 pound linebacker from Mississauga, Ontario will join the team for the 2015 OUA season.

With Cassar’s commitment, the Ravens successfully filled a void on their defensive unit. Overall, the team is thrilled to have landed a CFC 100 recruit with tremendous talent and experience.

Jack Cassar commitment

“We are very excited to have Jack join the Ravens Football program,” commented Ravens Head Coach Steve Sumarah.  “As the number three rated linebacker in the country, he helps fill a need on our defense as a big physical inside backer who can run from sideline to sideline.”

“We are looking forward to having Jack in the program for the next five years.”

For Cassar, the opportunity to thrive, contribute and succeed in reaching his gridiron and academic goals existed at Carleton.

“I believe the Carleton football program will be very successful in the future as it is a new program,” explained Cassar of his commitment.  “I am proud to say that I can now contribute to the uprising of this program and have the best and most beneficial time in university.”

“I am pursuing the CFL and I feel that the Carleton coaching staff will make me the best football player I can be to do so, and make my one main goal come to reality. This is a new chapter in my life where I can work extremely hard both athletically and academically to be able to have options when I graduate.”

Cassar was supposed to play this season with the Lorne Park Spartans of the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA).  However, due to OFSAA transfer rules, he was deemed ineligible to play this season.  Additionally, the linebacker has suited up for the Notre Dame Hounds of the Regina Intercollegiate Football League (RIFL) and Mississauga Warriors of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

While he has committed to the Ravens, Cassar is still considering options south of the border. Currently, he has no offers, but has attracted attention from NCAA Division 1 schools including Buffalo, Eastern Michigan, North Dakota and Montana.
