Top running back recruit Alex Collins chose to decommit from Miami and head to Arkansas and join new coach Bret Beilema. Collins mom didn’t like this decision and made a ridiculous choice to run off with Collins’ letter of intent. Collins’ was able to get his father to sign the letter and will head to Arkansas, but not without problems. Collins’ mother has hired representation because she is concerned with her son’s decision. “Ms. McDonald understands that Alex has received consent from his father who has signed the letter-of-intent for him to play football for the University of Arkansas. However, our client’s initial intentions remain unchanged. She is a loving and caring mother who only wants her son to choose a university without any outside and inappropriate influences. Ms. McDonald hopes all NCAA rules and regulations were followed during today’s signing. She is not seeking any personal financial gain because her only concern is for Alex’s happiness and well being. The Cochran Firm is standing by Ms. McDonald in this difficult time and has made all of the firm’s resources available to her as she explores her options.” Collins’ aunt, Loretta Collins, said: “[Alex] and his mom have to talk some more about the situation. I mean I’m not saying that she won’t support him, but he would have loved for her to have been here today to see all of this.” If Collins’ mom decides to follow through with the legal process and keeps her son from attending Arkansas, that’s a real shame. A young man should be able to choose where he wants to play if given the chance. His life, his choice.
