Luke Cain is the recruit who got away.

The 25-year-old Thunder Bay forward, one of several high-profile newcomers the Lakehead Thunderwolves landed in the offseason, has instead chosen to play for the University of Manitoba Bisons in 2012-13.

Lakehead coach Joel Scherban on Tuesday confirmed Cain's decision.

Cain, an NCAA transfer from Union College, has two years of CIS eligbility left. He had 15 goals and 29 points in 87 NCAA contests.

The Wolves kick off training camp on Tuesday afternoon at the Tournament Centre.

Another strike against Scherban? When players commit then change mind what else can it be.

Nah, I know the reason, but I was told off the record. It has nothing to do with Joel. Same with Ryan McDonald. He left for family reasons, which you have to respect.

A prized recruit happens to change his mind about playing for the home town team and we are supposed to believe it has nothing to do with the direction of the team?

Come on Leith, none of us is the naive.
