Key Points

  • Scarver boasts experience in the CFL with the Ottawa REDBLACKS and impressive stats from his college career.
  • His collegiate achievements include consensus All-American honors and the Jet Award for top return specialist.

Toronto Argonauts Make Strategic Signing

The Toronto Argonauts have fortified their lineup by acquiring American wide receiver Savon Scarver, an announcement that came Wednesday. At 25 years of age, Scarver contributes both talent and young vigor to the Argonauts’ roster.

Savon Scarver’s Past CFL and College Achievements

Before joining the Argos, Scarver played five games for the Ottawa REDBLACKS in the 2023 season. During his time with the REDBLACKS, he caught seven passes, accumulating 69 yards and contributed in punt returns. Following an impressive stint at Utah State University, where he tallied 757 yards from 55 receptions and scored five touchdowns, the Las Vegas native caught the eye of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, albeit briefly.

Decorated Collegiate Career

Scarver’s return skills shone brightly during his college years. Averaging 27.4 yards on kick returns, he notched seven touchdowns, setting new records for his conference and Utah State. His exceptional play earned him national acknowledgment, including a consensus All-American selection in 2018 and the prestigious Jet Award as the nation’s foremost college return specialist in the same year.

This recent acquisition by the Toronto Argonauts showcases their intent to strengthen their team further, capitalizing on Scarver’s proven abilities on the field. With this move, the Argos look well-positioned to enhance their performance in upcoming CFL seasons.
