The Plug is your go-to spot to stay up to date with Canadian recruitment. Offers, interest and commitments on the top Canadian prospects from coast to coast. This month’s edition features record setters from the 2019 class.

Our list for the 2018-2019 season illustrates that there are 133 Canadian men at the D1 NCAA level. We are projecting 160 for next season as the seniors move on, and these soon to be freshmen come in.

It’s looking like another 50 or so prospects will be adding to the list. While many at the top of the 2019 class have committed, there are still several high quality NCAA and USports prospects on the board.

Below is a breakdown of D1 and USports commitments thus far, the best available and those headed the JUCO route.

At the top of the list are names like Marsei Caston (Windsor, Ontario) and Luke Howard (Abbotsford, British Columbia), both of which are due to make a serious impact at the next level in the NCAA.
