We saw CFC100 Kinsale Philip out of CFC50 New Westminster draw U Sports interest from Manitoba heading into July, and now he’s got the ball rolling down hill with his first NCAA offer on the board from hometown Simon Fraser. The Clan played U Sports football from 2002-2009, but returned to the NCAA DII Great Northwest Athletic Conference for the 2010 season, and since then have been looking for ways to turn around a losing tradition. Under newly hire Head Coach, Thomas Ford, they’ve hit the ground running with a string of CFC100 offers, and we’ll likely see more with some other local prospects still hanging around empty handed.

Philip says you could tell this staff is serious about turning around the Clan’s misfortunes on the field,

“You really feel the difference with the new coaching staff. They look like they have a winning mentality. I had a great time at the camp meeting the coaching staff and checking out the campus. It was great to compete in that kind of environment. Looking forward to keeping in touch with these guys.”

Simon Fraser wasn’t done with their hometown offers, and they targeted one of the best around in CFC100 Jevaun Jacobsen out of Clearwater Academy (FL). Jacobsen is a versatile athlete who’s custom made to help turn around a program, and he’d be able to fill in at multiple positions on the depth chart depending on how the staff feels about his talents. The Clan won’t be able to sign him very easily though since he recently transferred down to Florida, and he already has an offer on the board from Liberty University, who’ve made a massive push for Canadian talent the last couple years as they prepare to make their jump to the FBS level. Jacobsen will be surrounded by a bunch of CFC100 talent at Clearwater, including Kervens Bonhomme who already committed to Indiana, so who knows how far the exposure will go in terms of his journey. He also has a U Sports offer from the Laurier Golden Hawks.

CFC Lead Analyst, Clint Uttley, says programs could use Jacobsen in a variety of ways at the next level,

“Jacobsen is dominant on both sides of the ball. On offense, he plays quarterback, but is more like a running back especially in the nature of the offense that they run at Fox which revolves around the QB power run scheme. Where this young man is a potential NCAA prospect is at safety. He’s a tall rangy playmaker who can cover and tackle in space. Add that with the fact that he’s highly competitive and comes from a championship program, I think this kid would be a solid addition at free safety to any program.”
