Ted Thompson continues to kick over stones to try to dig up useful NFL players. On Friday, we learned of the latest player who will be making an official visit to the Green Bay Packers in advance of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Last year, Thompson brought in Moritz Boehringer from Germany for a visit. This year, he’s looking to the Great White North:

Geoff Gray projects as a guard, and he was named a first-team player at that position on the All-Canadian Interuniversity Sport team, which is the Canadian equivalent of the All-American team for the NCAA.

Gray’s team, the University of Manitoba Bisons, only went 3-5 in 2016, making his honor even more impressive. Here’s a fun fact: the Bisons played in two separate games that went to 4 overtime periods or more, losing to the University of British Columbia 53-50 in 4 OTs and beating the University of Alberta 67-59 in a whopping 7 overtimes.
