The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed American receiver Khaleb Hood.

The five-foot-ten, 180-pound native of Cincinnati, Ohio went unselected in the 2024 NFL Draft and signed shortly thereafter with the New York Giants, though he was subsequently released.

The 24-year-old made 252 receptions for 2,692 yards and 10 touchdowns over 64 collegiate games at Georgia Southern University. He remains the school’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards, 100-yard receiving games (six), single-season receptions (101), and single-season receiving yards (948).

Hood was named second-team All-Sun Belt Conference in 2022 and 2023.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats (0-3) will visit the Ottawa Redblacks (1-1) on Sunday, June 30 with kickoff slated for 7:00 p.m. EDT.
