                                                                  T h e 6-foot, 200-pound Geismar native

                                                                  chose the Crimson Tide over LSU at the
                                                                  Under Armour All-America Bowl on Jan. 5.


                                                                  "Ultimately, I just loved it there," Collins
                                                                  said. "I loved it every time I went to visit on
      my official. I love the players, the coaching staff. When I first went up there I fell in love with it from
      the beginning."


      Louisiana's top recruit greeted family and friends in a gray Bama sweatshirt on National Signing
      Day before making the decision official. His mother, April Justin, previously stated she wished he'd
      attend LSU due to its proximity.


      Collins grew up in Algiers before his family relocated to the Gonzales area after Hurricane Katrina
      in 2005. This season, Collins, a safety and running back, became the first Louisiana player to earn
      Class 5A All-State recognition on offense and defense.


      "I think it's a family decision, with the high school coach serving as someone to provide
      information, and we did that. I met him and his father on numerous occasions, and I feel like he
      made the decision that he thinks is best for him. It's been stressful, but I'm really proud of him and I
      think he's going to be successful."

      I'm neither an LSU fan or Alabama fan....but I wish him well and good luck! Its stressful enough
      these days for these kids who are highly touted assets for college football programs and are
      basically treated as an asset or liability once they arrive. I hope he does well, and I hope he
      graduates college too.
