Ending (for now?) one of the most bizarre stories in the already bizarre world of college football recruiting in 2013, 5-star running back Alex Collins signed (along with his father) his national letter of intent to become an Arkansas Razorback, today.
Earlier in the morning, his mother–Andrea McDonald–reportedly hired an attorney from the Cochran Firm, founded by deceased former O.J. Simpson attorney Johnnie Cochran to explore her options. (If the letter jacket don’t fit, you gotta act like a Twit!)
The oddball move came just a day after she reportedly took her son’s letter of intent and went missing.
Between the full Camo Collins wore to today’s signing (an homage to The U of the ’80s or signal he was ready to fight for what he wanted?) and his Lebron-like quote, “I’d like to take my talents to the University of Arkansas” it seems that the circus of the last few days only strengthened Collins’ resolve.
Today, Collins said he never wavered from his decision to be a Hog.
That’s music to the ears of Razorback Nation a day after one of its native sons inked with Alabama, becoming one of 9 scholarship running backs for the Crimson Tide, despite Arkansas being thin by SEC standards at the position.
In the wake of the Collins decision, Hog fans are rejoicing and, why not?
Under immense pressure and with his decision in Jeopardy!, Alex had all the right answers.
