Running back Alex Collins from South Plantation High School in Plantation, Fla., has committed to Arkansas.
Collins, who visited Arkansas on Jan. 25, made his announcement live on FOX Sports South.
“I like the fact that they run the ball,” said Collins, who also cited his trust in the Razorbacks coaching staff. Collins was recruited by Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema when he was at Wisconsin.
Collins, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 13 running back by Rivals.com, chose Arkansas over Florida, Florida State, Miami and Wisconsin. He’s the 21st prospect to commit to Arkansas for the class of 2013.
The announcement from Collins was apparently met with great anticipation in Fayetteville, Ark. Bielema posted the following message on twitter shortly after Collins announced he plans to sign with the Razorbacks.
Wooooo pig sooooie!Great night to be a Razorback!
