TORONTO (U SPORTS) – Geoff Gray, an offensive lineman from the University of Manitoba, is the top-ranked U SPORTS player on the third and final prospect list released by the CFL’s Scouting Bureau in advance of the league’s 2017 Canadian Draft.

In total, 13 U SPORTS standouts cracked the rankings unveiled on Thursday – matching the Dec. 8 total – including four in the Top 10.

Gray was listed at No. 11 in the initial rankings published back in September before moving up to No. 5 in December. In his fourth campaign with the Bisons last fall, the 6-foot-6, 310-pound guard from Winnipeg was named a Canada West all-star, the conference’s most outstanding down lineman, a national nominee for the J.P. Metras Trophy and a First Team All-Canadian. After starting all eight league games for Manitoba, the engineering student was one of two players selected to represent Canadian university football at the prestigious East-West Shrine Game in Florida, in January.
