Westbury Christian PG Collins Commits to USF

The USF Basketball team landed another commitment for 2011, when Westbury Christian PG Anthony Collins committed to Coach Stan Heath on Saturday. Read on for all the details!

The Bulls landed another hoops commit for the class of 2012 when Anthony Collins, a 6-foot, 172-pound point guard from Westbury Christian School in Houston ended his recruitment and committed to Head Coach Stan Heath Saturday.

"Yes sir I committed to USF," said Collins. "I really like the coaching staff and the players, and the area is great."

Collins took an official visit to Tampa to check out the Bulls about a month ago and liked what he saw.

"I thought South Florida was cool, the atmosphere was just great and the weather there is great just like Houston's," said Collins. "I really like the campus and facilities they have and all the new stuff their building is going to be awesome."

The 6-foot-1, 173 pound point guard is a four-year starter for Westbury Christian and has won Two-state championships with them in that time. Collins is WBC's all-time assists leader, and this past season averaged 12 points a game, 8.3 assists and 3 steals per game. He shot 60 percent from the field and 70 percent from the free throw line. He followed the Bulls on TV and is amped to play in the BIG EAST conference.

"I'm real excited to play in the big east and that was another reason why I chose them. I can't wait for it," said Collins. "I like how they play and they just got outplayed in a few close games. I like how the coaches are going to let me play my style of ball. They're also in need of a point guard and I am a good distributer."

The Houston point guard was recruited by several programs before narrowing his choices to USF and Baylor, before choosing the Bulls and is ready to take it to the next level.

"I'm excited about my decision and relieved that it's all over," said Collins. "I'm just ready to get there and get it started."
