Michigan State extended a scholarship offer to 2018 Savannah, Georgia wide receiver Tyleek Collins on Thursday. The Spartans joined Kentucky, Tulane, Ball State, and several others in Tyler’s growing offer list. The 5’10” 176 pound exciting playmaker. Collins could translate to wide receiver, running back or defensive back at the next level. The Spartans offered him as an athlete
It’s no secret the Michigan State coaches have covered nearly all of the state of Georgia over the past week and a half. In fact, the staff was so busy, they had to offer Collins before even making a stop at his high school, Benedictine Military School.
“Coach Terrance Samuel offered me. He called me on the phone while I was on vacation and told me I had an offer waiting for me when I got back to Savannah. He didn't wan’t me to tweet about it until I met with him on Thursday. He made it out to Savannah today and kept his word. He checked on my grades and officially offered me. It was really cool to meet with him, and the offer was even better.”
As a football recruit, you should hope to play in the NFL one day. Many recruits only focus on the end goal of the NFL and not the journey between, and that is what separates Collins from many other recruits that also hold plenty of scholarships.
“First and foremost, it is the brotherhood and character that you always hear about Michigan State. Having several Spartans playing in the NFL is cool, but what stands out is they're all high character people.”
Besides his most recent scholarship offer from Michigan State, his only other Power Five offer is from Kentucky. It is safe to say that number is likely to change, as Collins is hearing from the likes of Georgia, Notre Dame, Clemson and others. “I feel great knowing that a Big Ten school has faith in me and knows that I can contribute to the offense, defense, or wherever they may need me,” said Collins.
Collins has made a prediction for the Spartans’ class of 2018. “They will sign a lot of Georgia recruits this year, more than last cycle. Who knows, I might be one,” he predicted. He has a visit to East Lansing scheduled in July.
Tyleek Collins is not yet rated by Scout. Spartan nation will keep up with Collins as he works toward more scholarship offers and eventually comes to a decision.
