Alex Collins enjoys Arkansas visit: Can Razorbacks land running back recruit?

Alex Collins - Elite Scouting Services

Alex Collins has had an interesting recruitment.

The top running back recruit in Florida, out of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) South Plantation High School, was originally committed to Miami, but often wavered. He decommitted before Christmas and named Florida State as his leader. Running back coach Eddie Gran then left Florida State for Cincinnati, which hurt the Seminoles' chances. Long a fan of Wisconsin, the Badgers seemed to drop out of the race when its coaching staff left for Arkansas. That move put Arkansas in the race.

With most believing Collins will end up back with the Hurricanes, his weekend visit to Arkansas needed to count. And judging by his tweets, the Razorbacks have done just that.

The Catfish Hole is the storied restaurant to which Arkansas brings its recruits on its visits. Recruits eat in the Razorback Room, and stand on a chair to 'call the hogs' (the "woo pig sooie" call done by Arkansas fans).
