MISSISSAUGA — Members of the Toronto Argonauts’ scouting and coaching staffs recently travelled to the sunshine state where they hosted a series of free agent camps. After evaluating over one hundred participants over several days, the Argos are thrilled to have signed UCLA’s second-most prolific scorer of all-time, K Justin Medlock.

Medlock most recently spent time as a member of the St. Louis Rams in 2008 after beginning his professional career with the Kansas City Chiefs as a fifth round pick in 2007. At UCLA (2003-06), Medlock was a four-year letterman and still ranks second on UCLA’s career-scoring list with 357 points. As a senior, he earned unanimous First-Team All-Pac 10 honours and Conference Special Teams Player of the Year accolades.

The Argonauts have a history of finding exceptional kicking talent from UCLA. The ‘Big Z’, Zenon Andrusyshyn, also starred for the Bruins from 1967-69 and is still fourth on the school’s all-time punting average list (42.63 yards/punt).
