Golden Bears announce four CFC100 commits

The University of Alberta Golden Bears claimed commitments from three of the nation’s top CFC100 players.

The Golden Bears bolstered their 2020 roster with top-tier recruited talent that will be a fixture in their future success. So far, nine CFC100 players have committed to Alberta for 2020

Tyson Krushelniski (6’1, 210) — Linebacker from Bishop James Mahoney (Saskatoon, SK)

Krushelniski is one of the top-ranked linebackers on the CFC100 list and claimed the Defensive Player of the Game on Team Burris in the inaugural 2019 Prospect Game broadcasted on TSN last June.

His path to the Golden Bears also includes two Saskatchewan provincial championships in 2016 and 2018, along with two National Championships at the Football Canada Cup.

“Alberta was a school that showed lots of interest in me right off the start of the whole recruiting process,” said Krushelniski. “They put lots of effort into recruiting me and they really showed how much they wanted me to be there.”

Kolby Hurford (6’1, 170) — Slotback from Salisbury (Sherwood Park, AB)

Hurford is a high-impact receiver on the CFC100 list and participated in the inaugural Prospect Game.

“My player model is Jarvis Landry because of the way he plays makes big catches and crisp routes,” said Hurford.I help my team get energized and pump them up.”

Sony Bermudez-Chavez (5’9, 150 lbs) — Receiver from Harry Ainlay (Edmonton, AB)

The short but sturdy Bermudez-Chavez is a strong addition to Alberta’s already talented 2020 recruitment pool. As a receiver, the product out of Harry Ainlay is poised to compete for a roster spot on the Golden Bears based on his performance in the months leading up to next season as well as in training camp.

Bermudez-Chavez also participated in the CFC Prospect Game that was broadcast on TSN earlier in June.

Charlie De Land (5’11, 155 lbs) — Defensive back/Kicker from St. Francis HS (Calgary, AB)

The newest addition to Alberta’s secondary should prove to be a mutually smart decision for both Charlie and the University of Alberta.

“I would say I’m a versatile player I can go wherever the coaches need me and I’m willing to do so,” said De Land. “My best attribute would be man coverage and returning, for the most part, I have quick feet to stay with most receivers and I have a quick burst of speed I may not be the biggest guy on the field but I feel my football IQ keeps up with it.”

De Land also joined the commits above in the CFC Prospect Game.
