Alex Collins is expected to finally sign with Arkansas on Thursday, but it sounds like the process has been anything but easy for the five-star running back from South Plantation High School in Florida. Collins’ mother, Andrea McDonald, does not want him leaving home, and she has reportedly made life incredibly difficult for him over the past week.
On Wednesday, we shared with you this bizarre story about Collins’ mother stealing his letter of intent and running away with it so he couldn’t fax it to Arkansas. Athletes who are under the age of 21 need a parent’s or guardian’s signature, so Collins was unable to officially commit to the Razorbacks on national signing day.
But that’s not all. Collins announced that he had chosen Arkansas on Monday. According to The Miami Herald, McDonald went to South Plantation High School on Tuesday to complain to school administrators and coaches after her son made the announcement.
“She said she didn’t want to sign,” Collins’ older brother Johnny t...

If you don’t remember Foster...

Just when you think National Signing Day - or as Black Heart Gold Pants calls it, "Creepypalooza" - couldn't get any creepier, along comes new Alabama recruiting class of 2013 member Reuben Foster to make things even creepier. Foster (aka "The Guy with the Auburn Tattoo") signed his letter of intent dressed as Alabama head football coach Nick Saban. ...

National Signing Day for college football is this Wednesday February 6, 2013. Recruits will finally be able to put the ink to the paper when they sign their letter of intent for the school they choose.

After de-committing from Auburn late in the recruiting cycle, all signs pointed at Dee Liner switching to Alabama. On Wednesday, the feeling became a reality as he announced for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama followers get the opportunity to hear directly from the Crimson Tide coach each spring when Bama has its Crimson Caravan. Tickets for the tour stops are now on sale.
