CFC100, one other believe in McGill coaches

McGill adds two Québec commits to the Class of 2020


For Jacob Dufort, a defensive back from Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, and CFC100 Juwan Edghill, a slotback from Vanier College, home is with McGill football.

Jacob Dufort

When McGill reached out to Jacob Dufort, he was already familiar with the recruiter. “Julien Deschènes, the coach that recruited me at Édouard-Montpetit, moved to McGill and show me everything about the football experience at this school, and I loved it all,” he said. “The field, the locker room and all the installations in this program were perfect for me.”

Last spring, Dufort went to an open practice with the team. He said he had a chance to talk to several of the coaches, all of whom looked passionate. “I can’t wait to work with them,” he added. “Ron is an intense coach, and I love his attitude with the players. I think it’s gonna be a perfect fit between us.”

Alongside football, Dufort said he chose McGill because it is one of the best schools in the world for mining engineering. McGill is ranked third overall.

The 5’11, 180lb product of Repentigny, Québec spent five years with Les Rhinos de Lanaudière and two years with Les Sphinx du Collège de l’Assomption (RSEQ). He then spent three years with Les Lynx d’Édouard-Montpetit (RSEQ Division 2). In 2017, he was rookie of the year with Les Lynx.

“I’m going to McGill to have some playing time at my rookie year,” Dufort said. “I will do everything I need to do in the off season to do so!”

CFC100 Juwan Edghill

Juwan Edghill of Montréal, Québec knows there is no place quite like home. “I love the program and what they’re trying to build. Plus, it’s in my backyard,” he said. “Couldn’t be happier with the staff and what they’re doing. (Head coach) Hilaire is a great leader and everyone else knows their role.”

Edgill, who is 6’0, 175lbs, is interested in studying business, particularly financing and marketing. He spent two years with the Vanier Cheetahs (RSEQ Division 1). He also played at Upper Canada College and Lower Canada College. He spent time with the LaSalle Warriors (QMFL) as well.
