The Manitoba Bisons have recruited defensive end Mike West for the 2015 football season.
The 17-year-old comes from New Westminster, B.C. and is completing his high school playing career with the Terry Fox Secondary Ravens in Port Coquitlam.
With the Ravens, West rushed for 350 yards on 47 attempts for 7.4 rush average and seven rush TDs in the 2014 season. In addition, he caught 18 passes for 549 receiving yards for a 30.5 avg. and five receiving TDs.
“Mike is undoubtedly one of the top players in the class of 2015,” said Bisons head coach Brian Dobie. “A dominant force at Terry Fox, playing six different positions on both offense and defence (QB, RB, WR, DE, LB, DB), he projects as an elite defensive lineman in the CIS.”
The 6’4”, 220 lbs. projected defensive end was named as 2014 BC High School AAA Player of the Year.
“I am super excited. This is the university that I always wanted to go to and can’t wait to get to Manitoba and start my football and academic career,” West said.
