The two-time team captain for the Fighting Scots, Gillespie helped lead Edinboro to top 10 team finishes at the NCAA Championships in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and Eastern Wrestling League (EWL) and Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) team titles in all four of his seasons. Individually, he was a three-time champion in both the EWL and the PSAC, and was the EWL Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler award winner in 2007.  

Gillespie began his college career with a bang, winnig his first 23 matches on the way to a 40-4 record which is the most wins by a freshman in school history. He won his first EWL and PSAC titles and placed seventh at the NCAA Championships becoming Edinboro's first true freshman to earn All-America honors. As a sophomore, Gillespie tallied a 34-2 record, his second EWL title and was named both the EWL and the PSAC Wrestler of the Year on the way to the national title at 149 pounds.  

In 2007-08, Gillespie moved up to 157 pounds, posted a 37-4 record and placed fifth at the NCAA Championships.  He won his third straight EWL title and was named the EWL Tournament Most Outstanding Wrestler, and recorded his second PSAC crown and was named the PSAC Wrestler of the Year for the second consecutive year.
