Justin Collins Visits Iowa

Last week, we told you about a new name on Iowa's football recruiting horizon; defensive tackle Justin Collins of Texas. Collins took an official visit to Iowa City this weekend, and we caught up with him before he boarded his plane back to the state of Texas for his thoughts on the visit.

Emerging defensive line prospect Justin Collins made his arrival into Iowa City this weekend completing his first official visit.

"The visit went real well," Collins said. "Everything about was good, and really the coaches didn't have to single one thing in out in selling the program as everything there stood out. The people there are just so nice, the coaching staff is great, and I got along with the players real well."

Collins did not make a verbal commitment, though, as he still plans to make a visit to Tulane.

"No, I did not make a commitment, and really I did not receive any pressure from the coaches, which I appreciated. You can't go wrong with their fan base just from the showings at the basketball game and football banquet, but I want to come to discuss things over with parents, and give Tulane a fair look."

The majority of Collins' family resides in the New Orleans area.
