Concordia University All-Canadian receiver Jeremy Murphy has accepted an invitation to the 9th annual College Gridiron Showcase.

The event will take place between January 7-11, 2023 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The 23-year-old was selected to participate by a panel of football experts, scouts and coaches based on his professional potential. The event is designed to give top draft-eligible talent exposure to more than 100 NFL and CFL scouts.

Murphy is eligible for the 2023 CFL Draft.

The six-foot-two, 195-pound pass catcher was named to the USports All-Canadian first team in 2021. It was the receiver’s second national award. In 2019, he was named the USports Rookie of the Year.

In 2022, Murphy recorded 29 receptions for 589 yards and two touchdowns in seven games for the Stingers. He led the Quebec conference with a 20.3 yards per catch average and also caught five passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns in Concordia’s RSEQ semi-final loss to the Laval Rouge et Or.

The St. Bruno, Quebec native will do NFL testing, team drills, one-on-one drills and have his measurements taken while at the event. He will also complete the NFL Wonderlic evaluation which provides scouts with information regarding a player’s decision-making and problem-solving abilities.

Some notable players who have attended the event in the past include Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ quarterback Dane Evans, Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ running back Brady Oliveira and Calgary Stampeders’ receiver Reggie Begelton.

A number of former first-round CFL draft picks have also attended the College Gridiron Showcase, including Toronto Argonauts’ offensive lineman Peter Nicastro, Ottawa Redblacks’ defensive back Adam Auclair, Calgary Stampeders’ receiver Jalen Philpot, Montreal Alouettes’ receiver Tyson Philpot and Edmonton Elks’ quarterback Tre Ford.
