    Mathieu Betts, DL | Laval

    The dominant Laval defensive lineman has been doing his thing throughout the week in Florida, and people are taking notice.
    The three-time Metras Trophy winner as Canadian university football’s best lineman, Betts is drawing serious interest and could very well follow two other recent Metras winners — Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (2013) and David Onyemata (2015) — south.

    Joel Van Pelt, DL | Calgary

    An 8th-round draft pick of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last year, Van Pelt once caught a touchdown pass in the 2016 Mitchell Bowl.

    The Collegiate Bowl, set to kick off at 5 p.m. ET at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Ca., will feature Canadians Maurice Simba and Alex Fontana — with fellow Canadian Alexandre Savard likely to miss out due to injury.

    Maurice Simba, OL | Concordia
    At 6-foot-8, 320 lbs., Simba could catch the eye of scouts with his size alone; after beginning the week in California with second-team reps, he was on the first team at practice yesterday (Wednesday).

    Alex Fontana, OL | Kansas

    The 6-foot-2, 300-lb. Fontana started at centre for the Jayhawks this past season, and shot up from No. 9 to No. 5 in the Scouting Bureau’s December prospect rankings.

    Alexandre Savard, TE | Laval

    The 6-foot-5, 240-lb.
