Lokombo tops prospect list for CFL draft

Boseko Lokombo, a linebacker out of Abbotsford's W.J. Mouat Secondary, is No. 1 in the CFL Scouting Bureau's prospect rankings.

Boseko Lokombo, a linebacker out of Abbotsford’s W.J. Mouat Secondary, is No. 1 in the most recent prospect rankings from Canadian Football League Scouting Bureau.

The winter edition of the list, released Wednesday, features the top 15 prospects eligible for the 2013 Canadian draft, and is composed with input from CFL scouts, player personnel directors and general managers.

Lokombo, listed a 6’3″, 233 pounds, is a junior with the University of Oregon Ducks. He’s recorded 34 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and four pass knockdowns in his first season as a full-time starter. His Ducks are 11-1 and have earned a prestigious BCS bowl berth – they play Kansas State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Thursday, Jan. 3.

Lokombo has one more year of eligibility remaining at Oregon, and he’s already fashioned a memorable NCAA career to date. As a redshirt freshman in 2010-11, he helped the Ducks to the BCS national championship game, where they lost 22-19 to an Auburn Tigers squad led by future NFL star quarterback Cam Newton. Last season, he was part of a victory in the legendary Rose Bowl, as Oregon beat the Wisconsin Badgers 45-38.
