FSNextTV: Freshman Gavin Collins Interview

FSNextTV: Mississippi State freshman catcher Gavin Collins talks one-on-one with Gene's Page.



You've been at MSU for a few weeks. What has it been like so far? Has it been what you expected?
"Yes sir, it has. It has been more than I expected. I came into this expecting nothing but to work hard. And whatever we received from adiddas and the academic side I was just going to accept it and not try to be too overwhelmed by it, just roll with it and not be too excited about it."

You had numerous colleges on the west coast recruiting you. What was it about Mississippi State that caused you to commit to them over all of those schools?
"It was the fans, the atmosphere, just watching the games on tv or watching highlight videos of their workouts and seeing how hard they work, and just the fans, the coaches and the players and how polite they all are. I only had to come here once to make my decision. And I committed three weeks after I came down here on my visit. I fell in love with it on my first day here. Everyone was so positive and I could see a national championship sometime in their near future because of how hard they worked. And their fans just really bring it out of you. (Assistant) Coach (Nick) Mingione recruited me and everything he said was going to happen has happened."

Like I said before, you had a lot of schools recruiting you. Who offered you and which schools were your finalists?
"My very first offer was from the University of San Diego about two years ago. Being that young I loved it and I told my dad that I wanted to go there. He said that I needed to relax a little bit, this is your first offer, let's let it sink in for three or four weeks and we will talk about it again and we'll keep in contact with them and have conversations, and go watch some games. I played my junior year, then after that year we went on a lot of baseball trips with my local summer travel team. When I was playing in Georgia that is when Mississippi State saw me play. Coach Mingione saw me play and talked to my coach. They were looking for a catcher because they had two great catchers last year who were on their way out.

"My decision came down to USC, Arizona State, Long Beach State, Fresno State and a couple of others. When it came down to the decision, (I felt like) there was a great opportunity to help the team right away and contribute as a freshman and help us get back to Omaha. It was really a decision that just came to me and hit my heart bigger than anything ever has in my life. One day I woke up, went to school, called my dad and told him that I was going to commit to Mississippi State. This was two days after we got back from Arizona State. He said alright son, I love you and I'm very proud of you. I went outside and called Coach Mingione and let him know. He was so excited, then he put it on speaker phone and that really pumped me up."

From what I have heard, you could have been drafted anywhere from the 3rd round to the 6th round but you had an injury that kept you from being drafted. Am I correct in that draft projection based on you and your family talking to pro scouts?
"Yes sir."

Tell the fans who are watching this video what kind of injury did you have.
"During our first high school game of the season there was a play at the plate where a guy slide into me at home plate, slide into my ankle really hard. When we went to the doctor a couple of days later, the man who x-rayed my foot didn't find a fracture of my tibia. But 10 weeks later I had an MRI and the MRI showed that there was a fracture. And that was right before state finals. I had played third base on season with it taped and braced up. After we found out it was fractured, I wanted to finish my senior season because we were going into the state finals."

Are you 100% recovered from your injury?
"Yes sir, I'm 100%."

Now that you are a Bulldog, I guess you are really looking forward to the fall and spring?
"Oh yeah, I'm excited."
