Anderson among Huskies to sign deal with CFL teams

Saint Mary’s Huskies fullback Reed Anderson has landed with the Grey Cup champions.

Saint Mary’s Huskies fullback Reed Anderson has landed with the Grey Cup champions.

The six-foot-one, 241-pound converted linebacker was not selected in the CFL draft on May 2 but signed as a free agent with the Montreal Alouettes on the weekend, his agent, Mark Maren, told Metro Halifax.

Anderson, from Barrie, Ont., was ranked ninth among 10 fullbacks by TSN heading into the draft, described as “strictly a banger” who had no carries and two catches in his first year as a fullback and fourth at Saint Mary’s.

Anderson wasn’t the only Huskie to put pen to paper on a contract over the weekend.

Atlantic University Sport all-star punter/kicker Justin Palardy of Murray Siding, Colchester Co., inked a deal with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who selected him in the fifth round (36th overall) of the draft.

All-star offensive lineman Adam Baboulas, meanwhile, signed with the B.C. Lions, who selected him in the sixth round (41st overall) of the draft.

Huskies free safety Saleem Borhot, meanwhile, signed last week with the Edmonton Eskimos, who drafted him in the second round (12th overall).

The only drafted member of the Huskies who hasn’t signed a contract is linebacker Karl McCartney, taken in the fifth round (38th overall) by the Calgary Stampeders.

Rookie camps open around the CFL on June 2.
