Alex Collins Finally Signs With Arkansas Razorbacks, Mother Hires Attorney


The National Signing Day drama involving four-star running back recruit Alex Collins has finally come to an end. For those who aren’t familiar with the story, Collins was forced to cancel his announcement after his mother confiscated his National Letter of Intent because she did not want him leaving South Florida.

On Thursday, the nightmare ended for Collins. Collins sent in the papers to Arkansas thanks to a signature from his father:

Unfortunately for Collins, we could see some resistance to his signing if his mother gets her way. The Miami Herald reports that she has hired an attorney as she contemplates signing the National Letter of Intent. Regardless of her intentions, it seems very unlikely that Collins will end up anywhere but Fayetteville.

“Alex is a great addition to this class,” Razorbacks new head coach Bret Bielema said in a press release. “He is an upstanding young man who has impressed us throughout our time getting to know him, and he focused on making a decision that was the best for him athletically, academically and socially. He has high character and is a student-athlete we are thrilled to bring into our family. He made it clear to us that he truly wanted to be a Razorback, which is what we want from everyone we sign.”

Hopefully Collins’ mother can let go of her agenda and let her son follow his dream. At this point, she is doing nothing but creating further embarrassment to her son during a time that is supposed to be one of the greatest moments of his life.
