SFU Clan quarterback Jason Marshall (left) and wide receiver Aaron Hargreaves (right) are both headed to the Canadian Football League (CFL).

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers selected Hargreaves in the CFL college draft April 30 and the Edmonton Eskimos signed Marshall as a running back a week later.

Marshall, 23, a fifth-year business administration major from North Vancouver, quarterbacked eight games in his senior year, completing 78 of 149 passes for four touchdowns and running in one more.

Hargreaves, 22, was the Clan’s leading receiver each of the past three seasons and was named a Canada West All-Star in 2006 and 2007. The Ladner-born fourth-year communication major finishes his SFU career with 1,478 receiving yards, second in the Clan record books under Canadian rules. He’s also the 184th SFU player drafted to the CFL, more than any other university over the past 38 years.

The Blue Bombers currently lead the CFL in Simon Fraser talent with Hargreaves, Ibrahim Khan, Neil McKinlay and Doug Brown, followed by the B.C. Lions with Bret Anderson, Dean Valli and Angus Reid; the Eskies with Marshall; the Saskatchewan Roughriders with Luca Congi; and the Montreal Alouettes with Mike Vilmek.
