"It was great," he told Dawgman.com tonight. "We got a tour, met with some academic advisors, saw the stadium and got to wear a Washington jersey with my name and number on it. I wear the number 4. That was tight. That was definitely a highlight. Just seeing the stadium and the way they have things set up, it was nice."
Sam Cunningham was Frederick's host. "He just told me about what a great program it is and how
much of a family atmosphere it is up there, which is something I'm looking for. He talked about how
well the coaches and players get along."
Did Collins noticed some of that first-hand? "Oh yeah," he said. "The coaches were really nice,
everything about the program up there was great." Offensive Coordinator Keith Gilbertson was
the coach that talked to Frederick about the program. "He told me that they need a guy that can come
in right away. We looked at the depth chart and there's only 3 players that are coming back. He
told me that I could be a big part of their running attack, not just as a running back but also catching
passes out of the backfield." Collins caught nearly 1000 yards this year out of the backfield, so
he could certainly add that dimension to an already potent offensive scheme.
Frederick also talked to Coach Neuheisel. "Coach Neu? We talked about everything, about
academics and having fun. He's all about having fun." Academically, Collins also got his
questions answered. "The academics are great. I'm thinking about maybe going into either
communications or business."
With two trips still left in the books, Collins admitted the bar has been set high. "It was cool,"
he said. "Everything I was looking for in a school they had. Of course they did a good job. But
I still have a trip to Arizona State this next weekend and then Oregon. That's it.
I'll make a decision after that."
