"I got two more offers from Dartmouth and Kent State," said McCollum. "I talked with coach (Buddy) Teevens from Dartmouth. He said that they were, ‘tremendously impressed with my academic, athletic and personal background.' I also talked with coach (Ben) Needham from Kent State. He said that they loved my film and watched it several times."
The junior says that he's been talking to both schools, but still not expecting the offers quite yet.
"Both of the offers were a little bit of a surprise. I had contact with both the teams, but not much," he said.
McCollum says that there are things about both schools that he likes.
"Dartmouth is more rural than most Ivy League schools. For Kent State, one of my teammates, Jackson Hayes, is walking on there next year," said McCollum.
"My interest in all schools right now are equal. One hasn't separated from the pack yet," he said.
The offensive tackle says he's truly enjoying the recruiting process.
"It's nice to have so many coaches and programs showing this much confidence in me so early," said McCollum.
