McMaster’s “constant interest” selling point for St. Catharines recruit (VIDEO)

St.Catharines receiver joins OUA team’s 2016 class.

Keagan Oshust couldn’t refuse the first and continual team that expressed serious interest in him.

Consequently, the 6’3, 200 pound receiver from St. Catharines, Ontario signed with McMaster Marauders.  Oshust will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

In addition to being flattered by the interest and attention he received, from the Hamilton, Ontario team, there were other reasons for the offensive standout.

“Mac for one was the first team that recruited me and took an interest in me; the compliments from former Head Coach [Stefan] Ptaszek and constant interest in me from multiple coaching staff from Mac as well,” explained Oshust.  “Hamilton is also close to home being from St.Catharines and it felt like home when I stepped on campus.”

“The overnight visit there was a blast, and I stayed with great group of guys who were respectful as well as had lots in common. Being a receiver, it was very intriguing for me that the quarterback at Mac [Asher Hastings] is coming back for his fifth year and last year broke the record for most throwing touchdowns in a season. Also, they have been to the Vanier Cup three times in the last six or so years. Of course McMaster is a prestigious school for academics.”

Additionally, the receiver suited up for Niagara Spears of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).
