Juco RHP Talks About MSU Visit

Corey Collins, a righthanded junior college pitcher who played for Seward County (KS) CC the past two years, talks about how his official visit to Mississippi State went this past weekend.

"It went pretty good, I liked it," said Corey. "I didn't know the town was so small, but the university was pretty nice. That's what I really liked the most about it, the university and, of course, the baseball program."

He pointed out several things that impressed him about the Mississippi State baseball program.

"The facilities were really nice and also the tradition that the program has," said Corey. "And their coaches are a good group of coaches."

He was hosted by true freshman righthanded pitcher Devin Jones.

"Devin Jones hosted me," said Corey "He told me playing there is an opportunity to play in the SEC and that they want to get back to winning."

Now that he has had a chance to see what it is like at Mississippi State, he explained where they fit in his recruitment.

"They are definitely in my top three," said Corey.

Corey has one, possibly two official visits left on his recruiting agenda.

"I visit Southeast Missouri State (Tuesday and Wednesday of this week)," said Corey. "I think I'm going to Oklahoma State, but I still haven't scheduled that (visit) yet. And I'm still considering Northern Colorado but I don't need to go on a visit there."

Corey Collins, who went 9-3 with a 2.59 ERA this past season, is originally from Colorado and Northern Colorado is where his older brother played baseball.

Look for another update after his official visit to Southeast Missouri State.
