CHAMPAIGN - True freshman offensive lineman Eddy Fish left the Illinois football program in early October, the team confirmed to Illini Inquirer.
The Boston-area offensive lineman decommitted from Boston College last January and signed under former Illini head coach Bill Cubit. He suffered a shoulder injury during fall camp and had not played a game yet this season.
The 6-foot-6, 310-pound offensive tackle was considered a developmental project. He has Big Ten size but has only played football for two years.
