Arkansas Recruit Alex Collins' Mother Is Holding His Letter of Intent Hostage Because She Wants Him to Be a Hurricane
Hurricanes fans may have been devastated when Alex Collins, a South Plantation High running back considered one of the best prospects in the nation, announced on Monday he'd instead be attending Arkansas next year, but no one was as disappointed as his mother.
, "Alex Collins' mom confiscated the papers and took off and ran with them."
"She's having anxiety," Johnny tells the paper. "I know she preferred him to go to UM. Alex had said he was going to the U, and then all of a sudden he changes his mind. We found out he was going to Arkansas on TV."
"He could get home faster and it's more convenient if Mom wants to go to a game - instead of having to fly to Arkansas," he tells the Herald.
