Stephen Collier

SCHOOL: Leesburg Lee County (GA)

SIZE: 6-foot-4, 210-pounds

POSITION: Quarterback


POSITION RANKING: Number-51 quarterback

SCOUTING REPORT: Collier is from Leesburg, Ga., and rated as a three-star prospect. He put himself on the Buckeyes' radar after Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman saw him throw at his high school during the evaluation period. Collier then made the trip to Columbus to compete at Ohio State's one-day camp on June 9 and was given full attention by the staff.

WHY OHIO STATE: "They made me want to be even greater than I am now," Collier told Scout. "I've always wanted to be great but the bar that they set is so much higher and makes me strive to want to be a better player than I am now. The point is to get better everyday. I know that they will push me hard but I also know they care about me. It doesn't get much better than that."

"It is right up there with the best days of my life," he added. "It's one of the best things that has ever happened for me."
