Collinsworth Building On Resume

Kyle Collinsworth is quietly having a great high school career in Utah. He's already scored a pair of state titles and he's working on a third.

Kyle Collinsworth has an impressive resume.

Last year the 6-foot-6, 190-pound guard was named the MVP of the Utah state basketball tournament, after leading Provo (Utah) High to a 4A state title for their second consecutive year.

And now Collinsworth and Provo are back at it again. The class of 2010 guard, who holds a 3.8 GPA, has his squad sitting with an undefeated record of 21-0 and approaching the state playoffs.

"I've done pretty good [this season]," Collinsworth told Scout.com. "I'm averaging 20 points and I'm leading my team in scoring and assists."

Collinsworth spends majority of his time on the ball for Provo, and he's learned to use his size to his advantage.

"I get to the hole really good, so that's one of my strengths," Collinsworth said. "I'm a bigger point guard, so I can post up smaller point guards too."

Because of his size, skill set and ability, Collinsworth is an intriguing prospect. A number of programs have been in to see him this year and he's received interest from Stanford, Wake Forest, Washington State, Arizona State, BYU and Utah.

Washington State, BYU, Utah and Utah State have all offered the talented guard, while two of the four schools have gotten Collinsworth to their campus.

"I went to Washington State over the summer," Collinsworth said. "It was a good visit. It was fun. And BYU is across the street from me, so I visit them a lot."

Collinsworth said he's "keeping an open mind" about his recruitment, but he did mention that a few schools are sticking out.

"Washington State, BYU and Stanford too," he said. "They are coming to my games and just showing a lot of interest."
