Noles Making a Push for Miami RB
Conredge Collins sat in front of the T.V. on Saturday and watched as the Seminoles were topped by Maryland and the Hurricanes fell at North Carolina, both by a field goal. Both Miami and FSU still remain his frontrunners.
"It was disappointing to me because I wanted them both to win," he said. "Both made some mistakes that really hurt them. But that happens sometimes in football and you have to move on."
Collins and his Pace teammates are moving on to the state playoffs that begin next Friday night.
After his season his over, he'll begin taking official visits, the first of which will be a Jan. 7 trip to Tallahassee. Collins says he wants to see Miami and Ohio State in person as well.
He's made no secret about the fact he wants to play running back at the next level and that FSU and Ohio State give him the best chance to do that. Ohio State's depth chart is conducive to Collins playing early while the FSU backfield – laden with speedier options – lacks a power runner like Collins after the graduation of Greg Jones.
With three freshman tailbacks on the roster this season, Miami would like Collins to line up at fullback, a position Quadtrine Hill will vacate after this season.
"Fullback, linebacker, I hear all types of stuff from them," he said. "I don't know for sure where I would play."
Collins says he's not sure when he'll pull the trigger and commit.
