Two Canadian defensive backs moved to 2020 CFL draft following positive drug tests

University of British Columbia defensive backs Malcolm Lee and Stavros Katsantonis are being pushed to the 2020 CFL draft, per sources.

After the UBC season ended, Lee and Katsantonis began training regimens for the CFL combine and respective pro days. Sources say both began taking an over the counter product that was touted to improve supplement absorption and assumed that over the counter supplements did not have any illegal substances. The over the counter absorption supplement contained a propriety blend with a growth factor and subsequently the pair tested positive for SARM LGD 4033, an anabolic agent.

That means Lee and Katsantonis will be moved from the 2019 CFL class to 2020.

Following a stellar performance at the CFL combine, Lee was the top ranked defensive back prospect on some teams draft boards. He registered 24 tackles, 10 pass break-ups and on interception in 2018.

Katsantonis was a first-team All-Canadian for the third straight year last season recording 50 tackles, 1.5 for loss, four interceptions, two pass break-ups and one fumble recovery.

Lee and Katsantonis won’t be eligible for their final year of USports eligibility due to the infraction.
