Offer No. 1 came in last week for Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara 2013 quarterback Milan Collins. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder landed the scholarship from the Big East and broke down the latest in his recruitment.
"It was great, I found out last Monday and I was so excited, I was jumping up and down," he said. "It was a true blessing that all my hard work paid off. Now it's time to go out this season and put it on the line, to be a better leader for my team and I just want to thank Syracuse, it's a blessing to have an opportunity to further my college career and better myself in college."

"I know they have an excellent communications program and they play in the Big East," he said. "They played in a bowl game last year and are making strides to becoming an elite team."
Aside from Syracuse, Collins is hearing from Maryland and UCLA.
Does he like anyone?
"I'll play for any school, it doesn't matter what school it is, Division I or Division I-AA, I just want a school that gives me an opportunity to play, has my major and can make me a better man."
Collins is being recruited both as a quarterback and safety from colleges.
"I don't care what I play, wherever I can go into college to better myself as a man and football player. I don't mind whatever position it is, if there is a chance to play right away."
With not a lot known about Collins, he broke down what stands out about his game.
"I think I'm able to make plays outside of the pocket, I'm able to create something that's not there when receivers are not open, I can tuck it down," he said. "I also have the ability to play both sides of the ball."
