What a difference a couple of weeks make when it comes to the #CFC27 CIS CLASS RECRUITING RANKINGS.
As perennial recruiting powerhouses Western Mustangs and Laval Rouge et Or’s classes were becoming clearer, a major shakeup ensued in the top 5.
McGill Redmen continues their firm grip of top spot in the overall points rankings bolstered by the addition of British Columbia wide receiver Dayton Moore to add to their total.
Additionally, the Carleton Ravens remain in second spot.
In third place are the Mustangs who moved up 11 places from their previous rankings. With their official announcement of landing their seventh #CFC100 recruit today in Ajax running back Trey Humes, the Mustangs do match the Ravens point totals (the tie breaker is the Ravens accumulated more points with less recruits).
The Mustangs now have 25 recruits in their 2016 class. The other #CFC100 recruits to opt for the OUA team include British Columbia linebacker Chris Ellis, Nova Scotia wide receiver/tight end Aidan Majury, Ontario athlete Alex Salytchev as well as defensive linemen Tony Rossi (Manitoba), Spencer Hood (Ontario) and Austin Miller (Ontario).
Meanwhile, the Montreal Carabins hold on to fourth spot in the rankings.
Climbing into fifth place is the Laval Rouge et Or. This year’s class has 21 recruits including four #CFC100 recruits – offensive lineman Samuel Lefebvre, receiver Marc-Antoine Pivin, defensive back Adam Auclair and linebacker Daniel Basambombo.
Another newsworthy note is that the Waterloo Warriors were the biggest movers as the team leaped 12 spots in the overall points total. The team’s class so far has 34 commitments. Highlighting this group is Hamilton defensive end/tight end Joshuah Brown, Niagara Falls defensive end Anthony Federico and Toronto offensive lineman Solomon Sarfo-Boateng.
As for the Average Per Player rankings, the Ravens overtake top spot (30.90) while the Rouge et Or slides to second (28.57).
Staying in third place are the Mustangs (27.20) while a couple of CWUAA teams switched spots in the top five – Manitoba Bisons are in fourth place (26.39) and UBC Thunderbirds come in fifth (25.43).
Overall, six CIS teams moved up while 16 teams slid down the overall points rankings. Furthermore, five teams remained in the same positions from the previous rankings update.
