One of the state's most powerful teams year in and year out, Byrnes High School, continues to reload with each class. One of their junior prospects, wide receiver Braylin Collins picked up his first scholarship offer this week and we talked at length with Collins about his offer and more.
"Yes sir I got my first offer from James Madison," Collins said.
Collins shared with us how he felt upon learning the news of his first offer.
"I was very excited! Like I've been waiting and waiting for this day to come. Now that it has come, it makes me wanna work even harder to get more scholarships."
Right now Collins has a number of other schools showing interest and he relayed that list to us.
"I'm hearing from Charlotte, Towson, Old Dominion, and Appalachian State right now."
Looking back on his junior season Collins says one game in particular stands out as his best of the season.
"My best game would be against Spartanburg High. It would be the most memorable for me because I felt like that game was my time to shine. Shaedon Meadors told me that it was time to show out after they were double covering him so I stepped up and scored a huge touchdown for my team."
Currently Collins says his route running and ability to come off cuts are some of his biggest strengths right now. He says he'd like to improve the way he comes off the ball because he tends to false step a lot. He also plans on getting even faster having posted a personal best of 4.45 seconds in the 40 yard dash already.
The 2015 prospect has already visited one school and he shared his thoughts about his time there.
"I visited Charlotte for their Junior Day. I really liked the atmosphere that Charlotte brings to their school! The environment is great and it really fits my mom's needs and so for mine too."
Collins says he plans on making a visit to James Madison on April 5th for their Junior Day festivities.
As for his upcoming senior season Collins talked about what he'd like to accomplish. "I want to help my team win a state title next year. I also want to become bigger and faster as a player too."
