Recruiting - Sherron Collins Update
Steve Alford is still working hard to land a big name player for next year's recruiting class, and this effort led him to Illinois to watch the first half of a football game that Sherron Collins played in. Illinois's Bruce Weber and Kansas's Bill Self were also at the game. Collins has narrowed his college choices to these three schools.
Collins is the most talented among several recruits pursued by Alford for next year's class. Scout.com ranks him as the second best point guard and ninth best prospect overall, while Rivals.com puts him at fourth and 31st. Landing Collins is important for Alford and next year's team after his other top three guard recruits chose other schools.
Collins plans to attend Midnight Madness at Kansas on October 14.
