Cajuns host Collins

Jason Collins (Westgate) is making the transition from defensive line to tight end. At the NUC Five-Star Showcase, Collins showed he's a natural at his new position, and he talked about that and the Ragin' Cajuns' junior day with FOXSportsNEXT.com.

When asked about last weekend's junior day, Jason Collins gave the Cajuns a high grade.

"It went well," he said. "I like their facilities. I like the coaches. They're real hands-on. They had good comments to say about the program, and it seems like a good future for UL and me if things come about.

"The coaches told me to keep working, and they'll be at my school in the spring. They said to come to their camps; there's a good chance I could get an offer."

Collins is being recruited by coaches Jay Johnson and Reed Stringer.

"It's up in the air whether I'll play offense or defense in college," he added, "but I like tight end. Defensive ends are real big and tall, now-a-days, so unless I grow -- tight end would be the better fit for me."

Collins caught the ball well Sunday at the NUC 5-Star Showcase held at Zachary High School.

He showed sticky hands and hauled in passes with good technique, catching the ball away from his body.

The junior started at defensive end last year for Westgate head coach Ryan Antoine.
