Stop me if you have heard this one before: Northeastern’s top recruit for next year will not be coming to Northeastern. With Chris Rawlings surprising everyone, including the coaching staff, by deciding to stay for his senior season, there was really no room for Jon Gillies. Gillies asked to be released from his National Letter of Intent and on Wednesday, coach Madigan agreed to this. We were the first to report this news in what was our second scoop ever I believe (the first being when we posted what the lines for the preseason game. No one believed us then either. Oh well.) To read more about the situation, including quotes from Gillies, read this.
We will have more on this in the coming days, but its an unfortunate situation where no one can really be blamed, but its just another tough blow for Northeastern.
