Recruiting picks up for 2013 QB Collins

Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara 2013 quarterback Milan Collins just concluded his junior season. Now that the year has passed, college interest is picking up in the 6-foot-2, 195-pounder.
"We had our senior day and it didn't go as well as we wanted it to," he said. "We finished 3-6, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. We were 0-10 last year and showed improvements to get to 3-6. We have to take another step next year and do a little bit more."
Though he saw time at receiver, Collins was a quarterback for much of the season.

"I think I could have done better, turnovers were a big thing with me this year," he said. "There were chances I was stuck between running and throwing and it led to picks. I saw an improvement going into the second half of the season, I had three in the first half and then two in the second half of the season."
On the recruiting front, Syracuse remains the lone offer at this point in time.
"Nobody else has offered yet," he said. "My main focus was the season and getting better. Now that the season is over I'm going to take a few days and sit down with my parents and coaches and see where I'm at with schools and then go from there.
"I know I have been getting information from Duke, Tennessee, Oregon, Alabama, Mississippi State and Rutgers."
Collins confirmed a plan to try to get to Syracuse before the end of the year, but he has watched the Orange.
"I've been really impressed from what I've seen," he said. "They've looked good on defense, offense and special teams, they are a very speedy team. Now, they are moving to the ACC and it'll be interesting to see them move to a big-time conference."
Collins maintains no favorites at this point in time.
Meanwhile, his position continues to be an area that is up in the air.
"The main thing has been that I'm getting recruited as an athlete," he said. "Some schools are saying I could play wide receiver or safety, I may even play quarterback. I'll play any position, it doesn't matter to me."
