With injuries cutting his junior season short, Desmond Collins of Columbia (S.C.) Ridge View might have to earn scholarship offers on the camping circuit this summer. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete missed the first four games limiting his production from his tailback position.
One coaching staff, however, might not be able to wait to see Collins in camp before offering the speedy athlete.
"No offers on the table yet, but I have a feeling Auburn is about to – hopefully," stated Collins. "I got a lot of letters and stuff from them. Also South Carolina, Clemson and Maryland send me mail."
If Coach Tommy Tuberville does decide to extend an offer, Collins sees the positives of possibly becoming a Tiger. However, it will be difficult to pluck Collins out of South Carolina and away from his boyhood favorite.
"Most definitely Auburn because they produce the best running backs," remarked Collins. "But, I grew up loving South Carolina. Basically to the heart it's those two schools that I like right now, but it comes down to whatever school offers the best."
Collins might star at the tailback position for Ridge View, but his frame and 4.40-second forty-time might be better fitted at the cornerback position in college. To help his recruiting stock, this year Collins's head football coach will also use him at cornerback.
So far, Collins figures to camp at Auburn, South Carolina, and Clemson this summer.
