Cam Judge, Riders top 2017 draft pick, Regina bound

Canadian linebacker Cameron Judge has finished up his final semester at UCLA which means the Riders’ No. 2 overall pick will be on his way to Regina.

June 15 was the last day on campus for the 22-year-old as he graduates with a major in political science.

Next up: travel to Saskatchewan’s capital city.

Judge was a late addition to the CFL draft. He attended Houston Texans rookie mini-camp, but did not receive a contract offer after its completion. That led to contract negotiations with Saskatchewan and signature on a three-year deal.

During his Bruins career, Judge played in 47 games for UCLA recording 46 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, two passes defended, one forced fumble and one interception while being a special teams captain and ace.

At UCLA’s pro day Judge measured six-foot-one and weighed 220-pounds then performed well running a 4.50 40-yard time, 6.69 3-cone, 10-foot, one-inch broad jump, 36.5-inch vertical leap and 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Those testing numbers clearly indicate Judge oozes athleticism.
