Southern Miss gets in early on Tyleek Collins

Benedictine High School, Savannah (GA) rising senior Tyleek Collins picks up an offer to Southern Miss..

In the days before and after National Signing Day, the staff at Southern Miss has already been looking ahead.  They've offered a bunch of prospects from around the southeast, and one big time play maker they are in early on is talented 5'10, 180lb WR/RB Tyleek Collins of Benedictine Military in Savannah, Georgia.

Collins picked up the offer from the Golden Eagles just a few days ago.

"They messaged me and told me that they have seen my film and they see my as a special, impact player," Collins told 

"They said they wanted to offer me at Southern Miss."

Collins, who also runs track in the spring, is being recruited by Derek Nicholson, USM defensive line coach.

"I don't know a whole lot about them yet, but I will learn more," he added.  "I also have offers from Tulane, Georgia Southern, and Mercer in addition to my one from Southern Miss."

Collins is an explosive play maker who is getting a lot of attention and more offers are sure to come.
