Mention Landon Collins’ name in many SEC circles and the first thing that comes to mind is his viral commitment video from the 2012 Under Armour All-American Game featuring his mother’s disapproving glare.

Even to this day, Collins is willing to joke around with his mother, April Justin, about their viral moment caught on national television.

Nick Saban managed to beat out Les Miles for the All-American defensive back from New Orleans despite Justin’s desire to see her son stay close to home. Leading up to Collins’ selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, Justin contributed to a Bleacher Report article to share her side of the infamous commitment video featuring her son.

“When the words “Roll Tide” rolled off his tongue, I was more crestfallen than angry. My reaction was misinterpreted by people who didn’t see the big picture. I also didn’t truly understand how serious college football was until that interview went viral.

“I just want to make this clear: I’m not an LSU fan. But I stick to my guns that he could have accomplished more individually at LSU. Landon wanted to accomplish some goals that he didn’t achieve because he didn’t play as a freshman, and that’s what I looked at.

“I considered not signing his national letter of intent, but as much as I loved the idea of him at LSU, my children come first.”

Flash forward to the present day and the New Orleans native still takes pride in playing for Alabama and especially beating the school his mother wanted him to play for in college.

During a recent Q&A on Twitter, Collins was asked to share his favorite highlight of his college career. “Beating LSU every year” was his answer.

Collins was then asked if his mother ever forgave him for playing for the Crimson Tide.

Even after players move on from college football and the SEC, the rivalries live on well into their pro careers as this exchange proves. Hopefully, Collins’ mom can forgive him for these comments.
