MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – (May 5, 2021) — During the 2021 Canadian Football League draft on Tuesday night, WVU defensive back Alonzo Addae was selected 13th overall by the Ottawa Redblacks.
West Virginia fans should not panic yet, as a new rule has been implemented by the CFL due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Addae graduated from WVU so he was immediately eligible. The temporary rule allows Addae to return to West Virginia to play his extra year of eligibility while getting the option for him to join the CFL in 2022.
As of Wednesday morning, Addae is still a member of the WVU football program.
