Illinois Football Recruiting: Alex Collins Visits Arkansas

2013 running back Alex Collins visited the Arkansas Razorbacks on January 25th.

He has offers from ten teams. These teams include: Arkansas, Miami (FL), Florida, Florida State, Wisconsin, Ball State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Louisville, and South Florida.

Out of those ten offers, it is projected that Collins is heavily interested in Arkansas and Miami (FL).

Collins is a 5’11″, 204 pound all purpose running back from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He played this past season at South Plantation High School.

South Plantation made it into the Class 8A Florida State Playoffs. They lost to Miramar High School, 0-3, in the first round.

Collins’ biggest strengths are his elusiveness, his vision, and his hands. He is a quick and speedy back that is very smooth. The biggest concern some have is his size. Even though Collins is smaller, he is still a very strong running back.

The five-star recruit is currently ranked 5th in the state of Florida, 1st among running backs, and 17th nationally among 2013 high school recruits by 247Sports.
