Montréal commits looking to reach full potential

Carabins add two local commits to their 2018 class.

Receiver Jason Hovington and defensive lineman Julien Melanson from Cégep du Vieux Montréal already know what the city of Montréal has to offer, and now they will see it from a whole new perspective as members of the Montréal Carabins.

Jason Hovington

Jason Hovington from St-Hubert, Québec, has already experienced Montréal living. He liked it so much he has decided to call the city home for another few years. “I chose Montréal because it was the best fit for me. I felt at home on my first visit there. I believe in their coaching staff and I like the way they do things,” he said.

“I think they are a tremendous coaching staff and I will be able to reach my full potential there,” added Hovington, who will be taking industrial relations.

In Hovington’s eight-year career, he played with Les Rebelles de Saint-Hubert (RSEQ) before joining Les Spartiates Vieux Montréal (RSEQ Division 1). In 2014, the 6’3, 200lbs athlete won a Bol d’Or with Les Spartiates.

Julien Melanson

Fellow Spartiate teammate, Julien Melanson, spent his high school career with Les Maraudeurs du Collège Laval (RSEQ). The 6’0, 230lbs defensive end is from Rosemere, Québec.
