Georgia WR Tyleek Collins adds Big Ten offers

Illinois gives Georgia wideout Tyleek Collins his fourth Big Ten offer

Tyleek Collins may play football in Georgia, but the Benedictine Military School wide receiver is feeling the most love from the Midwest.

Collins has earned four Big Ten offers during the last three weeks, most recently from Illinois on Monday. Michigan State, Indiana and Purdue also have offered.

"The recruiting process has really been heating up for me," Collins said. "The Big Ten offers mean a lot because it doesn't get no better than the Big Ten. The best of the best are in the Big Ten."

Illinois is making the state of Georgia a much bigger priority in the Class of 2018 and beyond. Illinois offensive coordinator Garrick McGee, Illinois safeties coach Donnie Abraham and cornerbacks coach Paul Williams have blanketed the Peach State.

Looking for a speedy, game-breaking receiver, McGee extended the offer to Collins on Monday.

"Coach McGee came to visit me today and was loving my film," Collins said. "He decided he wants me as a part of his offense. He said I'm a three-point shooter because I can score from anywhere on the field. Coach McGee seems like a real genuine guy."

Collins' recruitment is taking off. He's also hearing from Georgia and defending national champion Clemson. He plans on taking visits this summer.

"In college I am looking for a brotherhood," Collins said. "I want to win."
