Former Texas player looking at ASU

A junior college bounce back player who redshirted in 2013 at Texas is now being recruited by Arizona State.

One of Arizona's top junior college imports on defense in 2015 visited Arizona State's spring practice Saturday and may be back in attendance this Saturday.

Chevoski Collins, who signed with Texas and redshirted at the school in 2013 before being dismissed for undisclosed rules violations, is a candidate for an ASU offer this year.

A 5-foot-11, 190 pound safety, Collins is getting a chance to better familiarize himself with the Sun Devils now that he's transferred from Navarro Junior College in Corsicana, Texas, to Scottsdale Community College.

"Yes sir, they are recruiting me and have told me that I could get an offer when they come to see me this spring," Collins said. "I'm very interested in them and liked seeing how they practiced. They have a good way of doing things."

Collins said he was able to speak with ASU secondary coach Chris Ball and head coach Todd Graham following the session and he's working to build up a good relationship with them.

"I like the coaches from what I've been able to get to know about them so far," Collins said. "Their defense is aggressive and I like the way they play and the coaches have a lot of energy. It was good, I'm glad I went down there and am going to try to go to their practice again this Saturday if I can make it."

Collins said he's getting widely recruited and expects to have a variety of options after this season at Scottsdale, which he transferred to in order to improve his overall experience and due to some relationships established at the school.

"If ASU offers me that's definitely going to be one of the schools I seriously consider," he said. "I like it out here and think it's a pretty good situation there."
