Class of 2017 four-star wide receiver Nico Collins played with 2017 Michigan quarterback commit Dylan McCaffrey on Team Hypercool during The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon. The two worked well together and developed more of a relationship on and off the field.
2017 WR Nico Collins to @MaizenBrew on Michigan QB commit Dylan McCaffrey: "Dylan is a great quarterback. I loved playing with him."— Evan Petzold (@EvanPetzold) July 13, 2016
“He [Dylan McCaffrey] said he would like to continue to be something great at Michigan together.
Believe it or not, the receiver from Clay-Chalkville in Pinson, Alabama has Michigan as his leader.
"They've always been the leader," Collins said to Mark Snyder of the Detroit Free Press. "They've always been up there from the first two times I went. Everything about Michigan. The coaching staff, it's a tradition-type school and just the vibe of the coaches, it's good."
Collins, at 6-foot-5, 195 pounds, has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Auburn, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Miami (FL), Middle Tennessee State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech. He has been recruited to Michigan by Tyrone Wheatley and Jedd Fisch.
While Collins has Michigan as his leader, he still does not know if he will commit to play for the Maize and Blue.
“Right now, I am just enjoying the process,” Collins mentioned.
Collins could be involved in a Big 3 if the Wolverines, who already have McCaffrey, would bring in both Collins and 2017 five-star wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones.
