July 10, 2015 - kicker Greg Hutchins switches commitment
"In February, the Bedford kicker announced that he would join Halifax native Steve Sumarah to play football with the Carleton Ravens in the Ontario University Athletics conference. But things changed last week when New Mexico State Aggies wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator Kevin McKeethan sent him a seemingly innocuous message on Facebook. 'He just said, ‘Hey, how’s it going?’, and then we just started talking and things just spiralled off from there,' Hutchins said in an interview. On Friday Hutchins, a former C.P. Allen student, announced that he would de-commit from the Ravens and will play for the NCAA Division 1 Aggies. The first person he called was Ravens head coach Sumarah." - Chronicle Herald
