Boseko "Bo" Lokombo (born October 15, 1990 in Kinshasa, Congo) is a professional gridiron football linebacker for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. He played college football at Oregon.

Early Years

He was born in Kinshasa, DRC, but moved to Montreal, Quebec in 1996. Lokombo was raised in Abbotsford, British Columbia, where he attended W. J. Mouat Secondary School. As a senior, he recorded 47 tackles with four interceptions and also played wide receiver and running back. He ran for 1,556 yards on 107 carries (14.54 avg.) and 22 touchdowns, and caught 37 passes for 728 yards. He was named the Provincial AAA Eastern Conference All-Star Offensive MVP. He played his junior prep season at South Eugene High School in Eugene, Oregon where he recorded more than 50 tackles.

Considered a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, he was rated as the 27th best outside linebacker prospect of his class.[1]

Professional career

CFL Draft

In the Canadian Football League’s Amateur Scouting Bureau final rankings, he was ranked as the best player for players eligible in the 2013 CFL Draft.[2] Because he was a probable National Football League draft selection in 2014, his CFL draft stock fell, leading him to be drafted in the third round, 21st overall, by his hometown BC Lions.[3] He returned to play with the Oregon Ducks for the 2013 season, but went undrafted and unsigned in the NFL. He signed with the BC Lions on September 8, 2014.[4]
