The pre-season talent evaluation process has started as the Tiger-Cats prepare for the Rookie minicamp opening on Wednesday, May 10th. The Tiger-Cats have been signing offensive line prospects to solidify their offensive line unit with candidates that have had the opportunity to play at an elite level. American offensive lineman Jordan Boatman is the newest addition to the Hamilton offensive line.
Boatman is a 6’6″, 310-pound offensive tackle from The Woodlands, Texas. In 2022, Boatman played seven games at Sam Houston State and was named Second Team All-WAC. Before playing at Sam Houston State, Boatman played at the University of Houston, primarily as a right tackle. In 2021, Boatman played 13 games for the Cougars after missing most of the 2020 season with an injury. However, Boatman did return to the field in 2020 when Houston played Hawaii in the New Mexico Bowl.
As Hamilton is working on adding new prospects to their roster, they are also actively evaluating talent from the 2022 roster and making decisions about which players should return in 2023. Earlier this week, the Tiger-Cats cut CFL veteran offensive lineman Alex Fontana. Their next cut is in the defensive backfield, as National defensive back Zach Herzog has been released.
Zach Herzog is a 5’9″, 192-pound defensive back from Windsor, Ontario. Herzog played college football at NCAA Division II Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Michigan. The Tiger-Cats signed the defensive back in January 2023. However, the Tiger-Cats have recently signed several defensive backs, and Herzog no longer fits into Hamilton’s plan concerning their defensive backfield.
