"It was really nice. I liked talking to coach Flemming and the staff. I was able to watch them practice and focus mainly on the offensive side of the ball. Then I was fortunate enough to take a tour around the school which overall was really nice."

Collins says his favorite part of the visit was being able to watch the Dukes practice.

"I enjoyed my visit. On a 1-10 scale I'd give it a 8."

It won't be Collins' last visit either as he has more lined up for the tentative future.

"I'm going to visit Appalachian State, Towson, and Eastern Michigan too. Right now I'd say that Appalachian State is recruiting me the hardest."

"I'm hoping Appalachian State may be the next to offer me. I'm really looking forward to getting that offer! That's one of my favorite schools so it would be an honor to have one from them."

Collins will be taking the short ride up to Charlotte this coming weekend to compete in the NFTC event and Rivals Camp. He's hoping a strong showing at both events will help increase his stock.

"Yes sir! I think it gives me an opportunity to show off my talents."

The 2015 prospect and his Byrnes team saw a new head coach named last week in Brian Lane. For years Lane was an assistant at Byrnes before taking head coaching jobs at South Florence and Woodruff. Collins talked about his thoughts concerning the new hire.

"I feel pretty good! Like the saying once a Rebel always a Rebel. So I took that and kept rolling with it because he has a plan and we trust him on that. We kinda went through that stage where we didn't have coach Bentley but the feeling of having a head coach in coach Lane really upped us a lot!"

Spring practice is right around the corner and he says he and his teammates share the same sentiments.

"Yes sir, we are hyped up for it! That's all we talk about nowadays. (laughs)"
