Collins’ mother reportedly swiped his letter of intent because she does not want him to leave the state. They are looking for her and the paperwork she stole.
ESPN (via SB Nation) reports:
“The papers are not there. I’ve been told by two different sources that Alex Collins’ mom confiscated the papers and took off and ran with them. They are looking for her currently. From what I understand, Alex is not at the school right now, he is looking for his mom. She was quite torn up about him leaving.”
Collins, who is from Florida, was originally considering Miami, but later changed his mind and chose Arkansas. Apparently his mother wasn’t happy with the change of heart and took it upon herself to steal her son’s letter of intent and make a fast getaway.
Collins verbally committed to Arkansas on Monday, and plans to turn in his letter of intent as soon as he finds his mom. However, some news outlets are reporting that Collins is now reconsidering his decision to attend Arkansas
He is ranked as the 57th best high school player in the country.
