Lancer jumps into CFL draft

Lancer alumnus Lekan Idowu jumped into the Canadian Football League draft Thursday, going at the top of the eighth round, 61st overall, to the Montreal Alouettes.

A defensive back for Windsor, Idowu garnered notice when he finished first in both the broad and high jumps before scouts at the Ontario regional combine in March. The five-foot-nine business major notched a vertical of 39.5-inches and broad jump of 10-feet, 10.25 inches and had averaged three tackles per game through his 2017 season with the Lancers.
