Thirty-Six C-USA Players Selected in XFL Draft

CHICAGO - A total of 36 players from Conference USA schools were selected in the recent inaugural XFL Draft, including three of the top five selections. The XFL begins play this February in eight cities: Birmingham, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Memphis, New York, Orlando and San Francisco.

After Maryland's Scott Milanovich and Florida State's Casey Weldon were taken with the first two selections, three consecutive quarterbacks from C-USA were chosen. The Memphis Maniax selected former East Carolina signal-caller Marcus Crandell, the Orlando Rage took Louisville's Jeff Brohm and the Las Vegas Outlaws chose Chuck Clements, who led Houston to Conference USA's first football championship.

Of the 36 players chosen, a league-high 20 were taken by the Memphis Maniax, including nine from the University of Memphis, the most from any league school. Players from seven of the nine C-USA schools were selected, including seven each from Houston and Louisville. Army and UAB were the only teams that did not have any players taken.
