Canadian quarterback Casey Bauman has been added to the 2024 CFL Draft and will attend the CFL Combine in Winnipeg later this month.

The six-foot-six, 216-pound passer has started the past two seasons at Augustana University, a Division II program located in Sioux Falls, S.D. He completed 61.0 percent of his passes for 4,160 yards, 43 touchdowns, and 19 interceptions over 21 games with the Vikings and rushed for 572 yards and six touchdowns.

Bauman started his collegiate career at Montana State where he spent three seasons, completing 51.1 percent of his passes for 477 yards and two touchdowns. He went 2-1 as a starter, helping the Bobcats defeat Southeast Missouri and Western Illinois in 2019.

Bauman qualified for Canadian status through his mother, Kelli, who was born in Abbotsford, B.C. He was raised along the border in Sumas, Wash. and indicated to 3DownNation via telephone that he and his family frequently travelled to Canada during his childhood.

Bauman will graduate with a Master’s degree in business administration from Augustana in May. He will be one of three quarterbacks at CFL Combine alongside Jack Zergiotis out of Merrimack College and Ben Maracle out of the University of Ottawa.

The 2024 CFL Draft will take place on Tuesday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
