CFL Stamps Draft Dinos Bekkering; TRU Recruiting Class

As speculated here and in other media outlets yesterday, Calgary basketball Dinos recruit Henry Bekkering was chosen in yesterday's CFL Draft of Canadian eligible players in the 5th round (35th overall) by the Calgary Stampeders. Speculation is that the Stamps originally hoped to bring in Bekkering as an undrafted free agent but ended up using a pick on the 6'8" athlete to ensure they got him. There is extensive coverage of the CFL draft and the drafting of Bekkering in mainstream media outlets today:
