The Calgary Stampeders have signed four players who were selected during the 2021 CFL Draft.
National offensive lineman Bryce Bell, linebackers Charlie Moore and Elliot Graham as well as receiver Luther Hakunavanhu all inked contracts with the Stamps.
The six-foot-four, 290-pound Bell played 26 games over four seasons (2016-2019) at Wilfrid Laurier University including 16 starts at right tackle. Over the 2018 and 2019 campaigns, Bell was part of a Golden Hawks offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in Ontario University Athletics. In 2019, Bell helped pave the way for conference rushing champion Levondre Gordon.
The six-foot-three, 215-pound Moore played 17 games over three seasons (2017-2019) with the University of Calgary. In his career, he tallied 77 tackles including 11.5 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one sack, one interception, one pass defended and one blocked kick. He was a member of the Dinos’ Vanier Cup-winning team in 2019.
The six-foot-three, 220-pound Graham played 23 games for the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds from 2017-2019 and made 87 tackles including four tackles for loss, five pass breakups, one forced fumble and one sack. He also had an interception returned for a touchdown against the University of Manitoba in 2017, with the 107-yard runback being the longest in school history and second-longest in Canada West Conference history.
The six-foot-four, 195-pound Hakunavanhu played three seasons (2017-2019) with York University and appeared in 22 games. He registered 69 receptions for 951 yards and six touchdowns during his OUA career. Hakunavanhu started all eight games in 2019 and led the Lions in receiving yards and touchdowns while finishing second in receptions.
