Former Western Mustang wide receiver Andy Fantuz has signed a one-year deal (plus an option) with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders. Financial terms were not released.

Fantuz, Saskatchewan's 1st round pick (3rd overall) in this year's draft, captured the Hec Crighton Trophy as the CIS football player of the year.

"We are very happy to bring to camp someone with Andy's ability and talent," says Roughriders head coach Danny Barrett. "His addition should add some serious competition to the receiving corps during training camp."

The 6-foot-3, 220 pound Fantuz broke almost every CIS career receiving record during his four seasons at Western. He is the career leader among receivers for touchdowns (41), catches (189) and yards (4,123), was named to the first all-Canadian team in 2002, 2004 and 2005, and to the second squad in 2003. He also set the single-season mark for receiving yards (1,300) when he was named CIS rookie of the year in 2002.
