TORONTO -- Linebacker Bo Lokombo has moved into top spot in the CFL Scouting Bureau's latest list of the top 15 prospects eligible for the 2013 CFL Canadian Draft.

Lokombo, from Abbotsford, B.C., rose two spots on the winter list. McMaster University offensive lineman Matt Sewell, University of Calgary defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh, University of Regina defensive lineman Stefan Charles and McMaster defensive lineman Ben D'Aguilar round out the top five.

Charles held the top spot on the initial list last September.

Lokombo has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble and four pass knockdowns this season at the University of Oregon. The Ducks will play Kansas State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.

The CFL's Scouting Bureau is comprised of scouts, player personnel directors and general managers from the league's eight teams.

The 2013 CFL Combine will be held March 22-24 in Toronto. The 2013 draft date has not yet been released.
