Collins getting close

The 2013 class is going strong for Nebraska, but the 2014 class could kick off with a bang here in the coming weeks. Nebraska hosted this top junior cornerback from Texas back in June and the Huskers have been said to be his leader as well. When can a commitment be expected?

Cedric Collins from Dallas (Texas) Skyline might only be a junior, but he's a player that Nebraska fans have been keeping a close eye on. The 5-foot-10 and 170-pound Collins says that he and his Skyline team mates hit the field next week.

?"We start practice on August 13th," Collins said. "We are only going to be practicing in the mornings. We won't be doing any two a days because we don't have an indoor facility and it's too hot."

Collins is a highly touted junior cornerback, but he might be asked to play a position other than corner this fall. Collins has already started working at that other position.

"I might have to play some safety this year so I started to work on that. I started playing further off the ball and really working on playing in space and more zone."

Collins got out and took some trips following his sophomore season and is eyeing a college decision in the coming weeks. Collins wants to get the decision out of the way before his junior season.

"I took some trips this spring and summer. I went to Nebraska, Texas, Texas A&M and Baylor. I am looking to make a commitment before my junior season and when I get that feeling just do it I will make it."

Collins says that his decision will come down to many different factors. Of course comfort will be a big part of his decision, but he is looking at education and coaches too.

"I want to be comfortable there because I am going to be there for four to five years," said Collins. "I am also looking for a great strength and conditioning coach that will push me and get the most out of me."
