The signing period officially begins at 12:01 a.m. but already a big fish wiggled off the hook. Over the weekend, power forward Ricardo Gathers (LaPlace, La./Reserve Christian) rescinded his commitment to St. John’s.

Gathers, one of the nation’s best rebounders, is ESPNU’s No. 30 overall prospect in the Class of 2012. He committed to the Red Storm after considering Texas, Arizona, Syracuse, Ohio State, Oregon, Cal and LSU.

With the Red Storm, according to his brother Greg Gathers, the big man wasn’t comfortable enough to sign early.
