    LOL! Finally one from my CEGEP RB wish list which consisted of the aforementioned Kwame Osei, Patrick Charles and Bertrand-Hudon.

    My mistake. I forgot about OL Ludovik Lacasse from CEGEP St-Hyacinthe.

    The breakdown of CEGEP recruits by OUA school:

    Carleton 14
    Guelph 7
    Ottawa 4
    McMaster 1
    Western 1
    York 2
