"If you see one better, let me know. I'm just very confident in my abilities and I think it's a big thing being the top guy in a place like Miami. I've worked real hard."
Collins, 5-11 and 230 pounds, opened his season with a bang last weekend when Pace defeated Edison. Collins finished the game with 142 yards and two touchdowns.
"It was a solid start," he said. "Edison's been real good defensively the last few years and they might be this year too. I was running hard and I'm just trying to help our team get back to the state game."
Collins used the off week two weeks ago to check out the UM/FSU game in the Orange Bowl.
"I went to the game and it was a real good one," he said. "The fan support was great. They really care for the team at Miami. I was in the locker room and everything after the game. It was pretty exciting."
The talented running back says he's getting weekly calls from all of his top college choices.
"I haven't set up any trips yet but I'm looking at Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, Michigan, NC State, and Florida," he said. "Right now the main two are FSU and Miami."
Collins said he has spoken to UM about their current situation.
"They aren't recruiting too many guys because they got a bunch last year," he said. "They're just recruiting me and Antone Smith from down here. Miami likes me as a fullback. Florida State said they want me to play running back."
When asked which of the two stands out right now, Collins said it's pretty even.
"It's hard to say," he said. "It's pretty even right now. I prefer running back because I would get more carries and handle the ball more. But really, it's even between both of them."
