Collins is good enough to play on either side of the ball at the next level. If it was up to his coach, he would play defense.
"Tony is a true cover-corner" John I. Leonard Head Coach Terry Gough said. "We use him at safety because he's such devastating tackler. I have coached players like Charles Frederick and Tony is the fastest kid that I have ever timed. (4.37)."
For Collins, he just wants to play ball. "The position doesn't matter to me although I think I am better on defense."
According to Collins, he has scholarship offers from Rutgers, Florida, Kansas and Ohio State. "Right now, I like Florida, Ohio State, Tennessee, Miami, Pittsburgh, Kansas, Kansas State and Washington. I am pretty open with them all. I want to take my visits and see what is out there. Anything can happen."
As a sophomore, Collins won the state championship in the high jump (6-10) and he also averaged 18 pounds as a shooting guard for his high school basketball team as a junior.
