Saskatchewan Huskies ‘have great potential’

Huskies add one provincial commit and two out-of-province commits to their team.

For Blade Wiggins, a receiver from Evan Hardy Collegiate, it is all positive feelings towards the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. James Bruin, a linebacker from Oak Park High School, and Jaxon Baker, an offensive lineman from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, will also be joining the Huskies.

University is a time of growth and Blade Wiggins intends on doing just that. “I chose to commit to the Huskies because I feel they’d create me into the best possible version of myself both on and off the field. They are a great program that continues to grow and develop each year. The Huskies have great potential,” Wiggins said.

“The people at the university are awesome people that I am familiar with for the most part. All in all, I feel it’s the place that best suits me,” he added.

In terms of the coaches, Wiggins said he has nothing but positive things to say. “They all seem to be understanding, caring coaches that want nothing more than to see each of their players succeed,” he said. “I also enjoy the fact that they all have a good sense of humour. They are a lot of fun but at the same time they know when to get down to business.”

Wiggins, who is 6’, 175lbs, is interested in kinesiology, which he said is an excellent program at the school. He plans on being either a chiropractor or physiotherapist. “So, if I don’t make it pro, I’ll be able to stay around the game in some aspect and help other athletes stay healthy for their careers,” he said.

During his peewee and bantam years, Wiggins played for the Saskatoon Raiders in his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In high school he was a member of the Evan Hardy Souls (SHSAA) from grade 10 to 12. He was a 2013 defensive MVP and a 2015 offensive MVP. In 2017 and 2018 he was ‘athlete of the year.’ He was also an MVP last season.

James Bruin

James Bruin is from Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he played with the Oak Park Raiders (WHSFL). He was named as ‘player of the year’ in 2016 while in the junior varsity conference. Standing at 5’11, 175lbs, he has played as an outside linebacker and fullback.

Jaxon Baker

Jaxon Baker of Lethbridge, Alberta, has played with the Lethbridge CI Rams (SAHSFL) since 2016. He is a towering 6’6, 310lbs and plays as a guard and tackle.
