Alabama, LSU, Michigan and UGA are all considered to be in the mix for the 6-foot-5, 195-pound wideout. On the 247Sports Composite, he is ranked the No. 135 overall recruit, No. 23 wide receiver and No. 5 prospect from Alabama.
While many teams would be thrilled to have Collins as a commitment, he might have to do a little bit of selling himself to the Bulldogs staff. Georgia already has 23 players committed (including 20 4- or 5-stars), and will likely take 26 or 27 signees according to Dawgs247’s Kipp Adams.
Collins is far from the only blue-chip prospect available. Uncommitted 4-star OG Tedarrell Slaton is also visiting UGA campus this weekend. Bulldogs coaches reportedly remain in contact with 4-star CB Ameer Speed, 4-star CB Jamyest Williams, 3-star CB Eric Stokes and 3-star Latavious Brini. Adams predicts Georgia will sign two of the four. UGA is also in the mix for 5-star DT Aubrey Solomon, 4-star LB Leonard Warner, 4-star edge rusher Markaviest Bryant.
If the coaches over Collins a chance to commit, he should probably jump on that opportunity. His highlights are posted below:
