In the northeastern part of Oklahoma, Hominy High School has a heckuva quarterback or at least a heckuva an athlete playing quarterback in Zaven Collins.
The 6-4, 225-pound Collins looked good in drills in front of all the various coaches at the Mary-Hardin Baylor satellite camp stop on Saturday morning in Tyler, Texas. Collins ran a 4.9 in the forty but has a 30-inch vertical and runs a 4.62 in the 5-10-5 shuttle. He worked out as a quarterback but you could see Collins playing tight end or somewhere on defense since he does it for head coach Scott Harmon and the Hominy Bucks.
Last season he threw for 826 yards and nine touchdowns while completing 54 of 124 passes with six interceptions. He got some of those back himself as on defense he had 69 tackles with four interceptions and he returned one for a touchdown. You can add that score to the 25 he ran for on offense as he carried 204 times for 1,594 yards.
Collins is the top student in the senior class at Hominy and he is currently taking three college classes and getting a jump on his college credits. I honestly don't know where he would play or if he is definite Division I material, but I love his personality, attitude, results, and his big build. I'm going to guess that he finds his way to a school in Oklahoma, Texas, or Kansas which is his wish list.
