Class of 2017 four-star wide receiver Nico Collins has told Maize n Brew his Top 5. The list includes Florida State, Michigan, Alabama, Clemson and Georgia.

Collins dropped LSU and Ole Miss from his previous list of seven programs.

"Dylan McCaffrey is a great quarterback,” Collins said after The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon. “I loved playing with him. He said he would like to continue to be something great at Michigan together.”

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.

"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."

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.
