It's been a busy summer and fall camp for one Southern Methodist University commitment.
Bryan Collins of Keller High School works a part time job in the evenings to help out his parents and pay for some of his expenses. When he isn't studying, playing football he is probably working.
Collins season gets under way Friday night when Keller High travels to Midlothian, the talented linemen is excited about getting his senior season underway.
"I can't wait to play a real game," Collins told PonyStampede.com Monday. "I have been really busy over the last few weeks preparing for school, football and working at my job."
Collins hasn't been too busy to keep up with his recruiting coach Jeff Reinebold.
"I call him at least once a week or so," Collins said. "We are talking about me setting up my official visit for the weekend of the Southern Mississippi game."
Although Collins didn't get a chance to watch SMU on television last Friday night, he was surprised by the outcome.
"I was shocked," Collins said. "I can't believe they lost to Rice like that. That's ok I know they are playing a lot of freshmen."
Collins committed back in the summer to the Mustangs and he hasn't regretted his decision whatsoever.
"I'm 100 percent committed to SMU," Collins said. "I'm very happy with my choice."
Collins attended SMU's summer camp and got a chance to work first hand with offensive line coach Dennis McKnight.
"I have been using stuff I learned from SMU in our scrimmages," Collins said. "I think I surprised by high schools coaches on what all I learned."
Collins plans on keeping up with SMU's progress and hopes maybe to make a home game sooner than his official visit.
