Collin Spink's recruitment is currently revolving around three schools. Which schools are most interested in the Reidland star?

Last season Reidland had a 5-5 record behind a productive season for junior Collin Spink. In nine games, Spink rushed 166 times for 1125 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"In my opinion, I played alright, but there's always room to improve. I can never be satisfied," said Spink. "I really think I improved on my steps in the backfield and technique. We always stressed that out at practice and it is a big part of the game," said Spink.

Right now Spink is trying to add strength to his 6-foot-2, 186-pound frame.

"I'm currently trying to gain weight. I weigh about 186 now and I am wanting to weigh about 205 by the time the season starts," said Spink. "I'm working on getting stronger in the weight room. My footwork is big this off-season. I am working on my flexibility a lot also," he continued.

With Spink's athleticism, size and production, it's easy to see why there are colleges that have their eyes on him.

"The number one school I'm talking to right now is Western Kentucky. I think they are my number one school right now. They are showing me a lot of interest," said Spink. "Kentucky is my next (school). They are also showing that they're interested. I get at least two to four letters a week from them now. My last is Cincinnati. They are also showing a lot of interest," Spink continued.

Spink checked out Junior Day festivities at both Kentucky and Western Kentucky in recent weeks. While Spink holds no offers, he's got an opportunity to pick some up over the spring and going into next season.
