Running Back Alex Collins was a no-show at his signing ceremony yesterday, but today he’s expected to sign with Arkansas. A source tells CBSSports.com that Collins will sign his letter of intent this afternoon.
Reports surfaced yesterday that Collins’ mother took off with his signed letter of intent. But last night, Collins appeared on a South Florida television station to say he was “sticking with Arkansas.”
“That’s where I feel most comfortable,” he said in the interview.
Update: The South Florida Sun Sentinel expects Collins to sign the letter of intent at 1:30 this afternoon. Meanwhile, Collins’ mother has hired the Cochran firm (yes, as in Johnnie) to represent the family ”while she contemplates on signing the NCAA’s Letter of Intent.”
Update II: Collins has signed on the dotted line. His dad is expected to sign to the paperwork to make it official, reports the Sun Sentinel.
