The defensive lineman was taken second overall by Saskatchewan in the 2017 CFL draft. He was late joining the team in his rookie season, only playing in three games. His breakout came in 2019. In 17 games, he had 61 tackles and 11 on special teams and five sacks.

He threw in a pair of interceptions, a forced fumble and a touchdown, giving fans in Riderville a glimpse of how bright his future could be. Judge wrapped up the year by being named the West Division’s Most Outstanding Canadian.
